Clinton Morrison raves about Newcastle United boss Steve Bruce

The ex-striker used to play under the Magpies incumbent during his playing days.

Pundit Clinton Morrison has heaped praise on Steve Bruce after his Newcastle United team defeated Oxford United in the FA Cup.

The Magpies were made to sweat by the League One side who scored twice late on to send the game to extra time.

Liam Kelly pulled one back with six minutes to play and in the final minute of stoppage time, Nathan Holland bagged the equaliser.

Newcastle weren’t to be denied though and Allan Saint-Maximin secured a fifth-round berth for Bruce with a 116th-minute goal.

Morrison was covering the game for BBC Radio Five Live and he was delighted for Bruce.

He took to Twitter to rave about Bruce, citing him as one of the best managers he played under.

 

Morrison played for Bruce at Birmingham City. In 87 games at St Andrew’s, he scored 14 goals for the Blues.

It might not impress some Newcastle fans to hear Morrison raving about Bruce and his management.

Extra-time was eventually needed to dispose of Karl Robinson’s team and in the second off the League One outfit were the better side.

Newcastle are 12th in the Premier League and Bruce will hope that he can get the team moving up the league in the coming weeks.

The Magpies now face a winter break before returning with a trip to Arsenal on the 16th of February.
