Shearer: Keegan not in danger

Newcastle legend Alan Shearer has insisted that Magpies boss Kevin Keegan is not under any pressure despite the club yet to register a win in six tries. Newcastle lost 5-1 to Man Utd at the weekend, but Shearer has defended his old boss.

"I think they will give Kevin as much time as he needs," Shearer told Five Live.

"The run of results suggest they are going to get involved in a scrap, but they are a much better team than those around them.

"Everything boils down to results and they are not getting them at the moment, but when they do I don't think they will have any chance of going down."
