Former England captain Shearer has not been immune to disagreements with decisions made by Mike Ashley.
His his name taken away from the main bar at St James’ Park when the premises was renamed ‘Nine’, after his stinging comments on the club’s regime.
The ‘Shearer’s’ sign was swiftly removed on the same day that the former player said he was “sickened” by Joe Kinnear’s appointment as director of football at Newcastle United.
Alan Shearer: “Over the years, ever since I’ve been here, people have rows, people have disagreements, but what’s always been the case is that everyone has always stuck together come the end of it.
“Whether that’s the paper not being happy with it, or the club not being happy, or the players not being happy.
“I think it’s important to resolve it because it is a link between the club and between the supporters and, at the end of the day, the supporters are the most important thing. Without supporters there isn’t football.
“I don’t exactly know the ins and outs, as I’ve not been party to it.
“But I do think that it is a shame that it has come to this.
“People have rows and you have to get over them. I would [like to see it resolved] for everyone because there has always been a good link, they’ve always worked well together, the club and the paper, the paper and the club.”
