Newcastle owner Mike Ashley remains behind under-pressure manager Sam Allardyce despite his fledgling reign taking a further turn for the worse.

The 53-year-old found himself the target for the club´s furious fans during and after Saturday´s humbling 3-0 Barclays Premier League defeat by Liverpool at St James´ Park.

Chairman Chris Mort has repeatedly backed the manager, and asked today if Allardyce still has Ashley´s support, Mort said: "Yes, absolutely."
