Newcastle have confirmed that Steve Bruce is no longer their manager.
Bruce has finally been sacked by the club’s new owners.
The Saudi-led consortium allowed him to complete his 1,000th career game in management, which ended in a 3-2 defeat by Tottenham last weekend.
Bruce is set to pocket £8million in compensation as he departs his boyhood club.
A club statement released on social media on Wednesday morning read: “#NUFC can confirm that Steve Bruce has left his position as head coach by mutual consent.
“The club would like to place on record its gratitude to Steve for his contribution and wishes him well for the future.”
