Ex-Toon Striker Plays Down Roeder 'Bust Up'!

Huckerby signed for Newcastle from Lincoln City when Kevin Keegan was last at the club.

And although KK rated him highly, Sir John Hall insisted Keegan sell players to raise money to pay back £5m that was borrowed to add to £10m to break the transfer world record to sign Alan Shearer.

Sadly Huckerby was the first to go, before he could make his mark at St James' Park.

Glenn Roeder is now at Carrow Road, and he has left Huckerby out of the squad in recent weeks to accommodate his seven loan signings.

But suspensions have put the winger back in the frame, and he insists he has no 'axe to grind' with his gaffa.

Huckerby: "I haven't fallen out with the gaffer at all.

"Everyone seems to think I fall out with every manager that's ever been here and I think if you spoke to them they would tell you something completely different.

"I say something and it gets all blown out of proportion but that's football and hopefully now we can get on with it."
