"Rubbish", says the Wigan Athletic PR man ... and I know who my money is on to be right.

Mirror: "Steve Bruce is ready to answer an SOS from Newcastle and become their next boss if Mike Ashley goes for a replacement for Joe Kinnear who has had heart surgery.

"Wigan chief Bruce has never made any secret of his desire to boss 'his' club and regrets turning them down when he was younger.

"Bruce has taken Wigan to Premier League safety just over a year after joining from Birmingham City - but he has private fears about their future after selling some stars and facing the loss of more in the summer.

"The Toon job has always been Bruce's dream despite his potential claims to succeed Sir Alex Ferguson at Manchester United."

Where the hell does that newspaper get its stories from?
