Newcastle have been ordered to pay former boss Kevin Keegan £2million in damages after he won his case for constructive dismissal.

The independent arbitration panel found in Keegan's favour following his departure from the club in September last year.

Announcing its decision, the panel said in a statement: "We declare that Kevin Keegan was constructively dismissed by Newcastle United Football Club Ltd, for which Newcastle United Football Club Ltd must pay to Kevin Keegan damages in the sum of £2million plus interest to be assessed if not agreed."
