Redknapp No Geordie Regrets!
"They have got themselves in a bit of hole this season but I think they will get out of it. I think they have three home games that could save their season.
"It was a fantastic appointment.
"They couldn't have picked anyone better than Alan Shearer - he was the one person who could get the place a massive lift like he has.
"He has fantastic knowledge of the game and what he achieved in the game makes him one of the all-time great players. If anyone can pull Newcastle around Alan is the man to do it.
"If you look at Liverpool when they took Kenny Dalglish, what a job he did there.
"He came straight out of playing into managing. When you have that type of knowledge that Alan has got it is not a problem."
