Owen will be handed the captain's armband as Newcastle play their first match under the new manager, anmd obviously it shows the pair have nothing to dwell over.

Keegan insisted he had no problem with the club's £17million record signing.

Keegan: "Not only will he play, I will make him captain. He is the right guy to lead us - and that tells you what I think of him.

"I know people will try to make something of the stuff in his book, but people who know me know it will not bother me - any more than it will bother me if it is right to bring Alan Shearer here as number two.

"Other people might say, 'He will be a threat to you'. It won't bother me."
