Steve McClaren is under a huge amount of pressure as Newcastle United boss.

Stuart Pearce has told TalkSPORT on 8th March that David Moyes, Brendan Rodgers and Harry Redknapp are the three managers who could save Newcastle United.

Although Pearce doesn’t want Newcastle to sack Steve McClaren, he feels that there are three available bosses who could save the side from the drop.

The former Nottingham Forest manager claims that Rodgers and Moyes would be excellent long-term choices, but he also thinks Redknapp would keep them up this season.

“I think Steve should stay in place, personally,” Pearce said, when asked who are the three managers who could save Newcastle. “But the two, for me, if you want to build a football club and build the club for the long-term, in reverse order here, are David Moyes and Brendan Rodgers.

“But if you want instant impact, as someone to keep them up, Harry Redknapp, between now and the summer.”

Moyes is currently the favourite to take over at Newcastle, just ahead of Nigel Pearson and Rafael Benitez.

Moyes is currently out of work, after being sacked by Spanish club Real Sociedad last year.

The Scottish boss has previously proven his credentials in England, during his spell at Everton.

Rodgers, meanwhile, has not had another job since parting company with Liverpool earlier in the campaign.

Redknapp would be the most left-field of the potential successors for McClaren, but he would have a vast amount of experience to call upon if he was to be given the job.
