Rangers boss Steven Gerrard has dismissed talk of him taking over as Newcastle manager.
The former Liverpool midfielder has been heavily touted for the job after Rafa Benitez left his post at St James’ Park last month.
Mikel Arteta is favourite to replace Benitez, but Gerrard has been repeatedly linked with the job over the past few weeks.
However, ahead of Rangers’ Europa League qualifier on Tuesday night, Gerrard quashed any talk of linking him with the job.
When asked about whether he was considering a move to Tyneside, he quickly moved to pour cold water over the speculation.
‘Fake news. Not that I’m aware of,’ he told the Daily Record.
Gerrard led Rangers to second place in the Scottish Premiership during his first campaign in charge last year.
On Tuesday he kicks off his European campaign against Gibraltar side St Joseph’s.
