Jonas Gutierrez sends message to Newcastle owner Mike Ashley on Twitter

Former Newcastle United player Jonas Gutierrez feels his old side deserve to stay in the Premier League.

Newcastle United cult hero Jonas Gutierrez has sent a message on Twitter lambasting club owner Mike Ashley.

The Argentine claims Ashley simply does not understand the club, or supporters, who he argues deserve better.


Gutierrez sent his messages hours after he won his tribunal against the club, which argued he was unfairly discriminated against as he battled cancer.

The tribunal ruled that Newcastle's evidence in their defence was 'unconvincing', the BBC reported.

Gutierrez, 32, was released in the summer despite netting an important goal on the last day of the season to help keep them up.

He currently plays for Spanish side Deportivo La Coruna, but still very much has his eye on Newcastle and their relegation battle, insisting he hopes they survive this season.


Just for old time's sake... here's another look at the moment Gutierrez scored that vital goal to keep Newcastle's place in the Premier League last season...
