Harper ready for Toon return

Published Add your comment

Newcastle goalkeeper Steve Harper is relishing the prospect of a return to European action at the age of 37.

A veteran of the Magpies' two Champions League campaigns, during which he famously kept a clean sheet in a 1-0 victory over Juventus, Harper could taste continental action once again on Thursday evening as the club attempts to secure a Europa League play-off advantage over Greek side Atromitos to take back to Tyneside next week.

He said: "It's fantastic to be back in Europe. All credit to the gaffer and the players last year, they were outstanding and earned the right to be back here."
