Newcastle great Alan Shearer insists his old club will not be relegated from the Barclays Premier League and has backed manager Kevin Keegan to turn things around.

The Magpies have not won a league match since December 15 and are only three points above the relegation zone, and Keegan´s much-vaunted arrival in January for a second term in charge has not brought the expected results.

"I still believe and maintain they won´t go down," said the Magpies´ record goalscorer. "They need a result on Monday against Birmingham, because it has been a long time since they won."
