Pardew Had No Interest In Scott Brown

As (last week) the tabloids dragged up a story that was 18 months out of date . Newcastle's supposed interest in Celtic's Scott Brown . we told you the facts!

Alan Pardew had no interest in the Celtic captain Scott Brown, and it was an old story from the days when Chris Hughton was manager of Newcastle.

18 months ago Hughton tabled a bid, but Pardew insisted the recent articles were miles from the truth.

United had Fraser Forster watched in midweek at Parkhead, the goalkeeper is up in Chilly Jockoland on loan for a season, and the media put "2 and 2 together and made 5".

Brown has signed an extended contract at Parkhead, taking him up to the summer of 2015.
