Newcastle have paid tribute to former chief executive Freddie Fletcher following his death at the age of 71.

Fletcher died on Monday night following a battle against cancer. During his time with the club, the Scot helped to drag the Magpies back from the brink of liquidation and re-establish them in the top tier of English football during the 1990s.

A Newcastle spokesman said: "Newcastle United were very saddened to hear the news of the death of former chief executive Freddie Fletcher after a brave fight against cancer. Freddie did great things for the club in the 1990s, especially in the early days of the Premier League, and helped re-establish the club in the top echelons of English football."
