Former Newcastle manager Sam Allardyce admits he is still "smarting" over his departure from the club and does not feel he was given a fair chance.

Allardyce parted company with the Magpies in January after just eight months in charge following a poor start to the season. But the ex Bolton boss, who was appointed by former chairman Freddy Shepherd before last summer´s takeover, claims he was not given the backing he had been expecting when he took the job.

"I am smarting," Allardyce told Sky Sports. "I think that for me (given) the timing, and the few games I had, it was a massive shock when they said they were going to make a change."
