Alan Shearer has handed a withering reply to Rio Ferdinand after the former Manchester United defender reiterated his defence of Newcastle owner Mike Ashley.

Ferdinand was widely condemned by fans for comments made relating to Magpies supporters' relationship with Ashley.

“They should say thank you to Ashley.

Ashley has publicly made clear his wish to sell the club, with former Manchester United chief executive Peter Kenyon the front runner to end the protracted ownership stand-off.

By the way, please say thank you for getting  Rafa Benítez  in.

And they owe a thank you to Mike Ashley for getting Rafa Benitez.” But fans were quick to call Ferdinand out on his inaccuracies.

Discussing Ashley's 11-year tenure as Newcastle chief, Ferdinand argued that fans should be grateful for the work the Sports Direct owner has done on Tyneside, citing his financial contribution after the club's 2016 relegation and influence over the appointment of manager Rafa Benitez.
