Mick Quinn reacts on Twitter to embarrassing Newcastle... Jamie Redknapp horrified

Newcastle were humiliated by Chelsea on Saturday evening.

As soon as you saw Steve McClaren smiling in his pre-match interview on Saturday afternoon, you knew Newcastle United were going to get absolutely battered.

Indeed, that's what McClaren does. He smiles, he uses buzzwords and he tells his supporters Newcastle will be fine every single week. But he doesn't actually do his job.

Nor do his players, of course, and a combination of the two saw yet another humiliating defeat at the hands of Chelsea on Saturday.

The Blues have struggled all season yet thrashed Newcastle by several goals with absolute ease.

And that prompted a horrified reaction from Sky Sports pundit Jamie Redknapp, who told Saturday Night Football at half-time: "That was probably the worst 20 minutes I’ve ever seen from a Premier League side."

He wasn't the only one, with former Newcastle man Mick Quinn taking to Twitter to sum up how he felt about the Magpies and their 'embarrassing' performance:

Mike Ashley has been pally with McClaren for long enough now. Surely the manager has to go?
