Robinson disgusted by what he's heard from Almiron as Newcastle stars rage

Paul Robinson is disgusted by Miguel Almiron’s recent comments in the media which have left several Newcastle United players raging.

Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the former Spurs and England number one slammed the 27-year-old for his remarks on a Paraguayan radio station and said “people in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones”.

In an interview with ABC Cardinal last week, the Magpies attacker claimed he wants to play for a team that ‘fights more’.

On Saturday, Football Insider revealed that several senior players are extremely unhappy with his comments.

Almiron has contributed five goals and three assists in 30 appearances this season, and has been one of the better performers at the club since the turn of the year.

When asked by Football Insider for his thoughts on the Paraguay international’s comments, Robinson said: “It is a complete slur on your teammates.

“It is the last thing you need when you are in a relegation battle and your team are not playing well. When your backs are against the wall you don’t need one of your better players saying stuff like that.

“If it was a player who had consistently fought hard every week and gives 110 per cent with tackles and runs you could have more sympathy for those comments. If it had come from a captain, or a leader at the club, you could take it more easily.

“But coming from Almiron, I do not think that will go down too well. People in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones.”
