‘Sunderland would win that league’ – These Newcastle fans laugh off pundit’s strange comments on club

Steven Gerrard has been linked with the current manager’s vacancy at St James’Park according to a report in The Guardian. However, former Rangers and Sunderland striker Ally McCoist has insisted the Glasgow-based club is bigger than Newcastle.

McCoist made the claim while on talkSPORT and suggested the former Liverpool midfielder would be better off staying at Ibrox and if he remained in Scotland for now, a better opportunity will arise in the Premier League in the future. He also stated that although Rangers are bigger, The Magpies do play in a better league.

Gerrard took up his role as Rangers manager last summer and has won 32 of the 60 games he’s taken charge of as he guided them to second in the league. The former England captain could get some inside information of Newcastle from his former Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez.

McCoist, who scored over 250 goals for the Glasgow club said: “I wish Newcastle all the very best in their search for a new manager, but leave ours!”.

The Newcastle fans took to social media with many of them disagreeing with McCoist and although many of them are angry with the club’s decisions this week, they were not in a mood to accept being called smaller than Rangers.
