Shearer brutally trolls Sunderland after PL relegation, Newcastle fans will love this

By Danny Wright

Newcastle legend Alan Shearer has brutally trolled Sunderland after their relegation from the Premier League was confirmed as they lost to Bournemouth on Saturday.

Shearer, 46, wasted no time in firing shots at Newcastle’s bitter local rivals by posting a picture on his personal Instagram account of a road sign with a black arrow pointing up, and a red arrow pointing down.

The former Magpies striker put no words alongside the picture, which was used to signify his beloved club’s return to the top-flight in place of the Black Cats.

Shearer’s post is brutal in the fact that it came not long after David Moyes and his men fell to a 1-0 defeat against Bournemouth, leaving Sunderland fans without much time to come to terms with what had happened.

Hull goalkeeper Eldin Jakupovic saved a late penalty to earn his side a point against Southampton, which meant that the Wearsiders were left 13 points from safety with four games to play.

Newcastle’s hopes of winning the Championship title were kept alive on Saturday when Brighton suffered a surprising home defeat to Bristol City.

They are one point behind Chris Hughton’s side going into the final fixture of the season next weekend.

Shearer scored 206 goals in 405 appearances for the Magpies during his playing career, writing himself into the club’s history and there’s no doubt that the fans will love his latest mocking of Tyne-Wear rivals Sunderland.
