When you turn to the sports pages today you’ll see elated Newcastle fans celebrating the end of the Mike Ashley era. That’s something I can join in with but what comes next is not.

I can’t ignore the human rights abuses of the new owners. I don’t want to support a team that is funded by the leaders of a country where people like me are flogged and put in jail.

I hoped for something better for Newcastle but this isn’t it.

I’m out.
