Newcastle United manager Kevin Keegan has decided to release Republic of Ireland international Stephen Carr and former youth team player Peter Ramage. Australian teenager James Troisi will also leave St James' Park when his contract expires at the end of the season. Keegan told the Newcastle Evening Chronicle: "Peter Ramage is going to go, and so is Stephen Carr. They're both going, and they know that. "We wanted to keep Rammy, but he wants to play regular football, and I couldn't guarantee him that here. "He goes with our best wishes, as does Stephen Carr, who's been a great professional for this club. He wasn't offered a contract, and I explained the reasons why. "James Troisi's also gone. He's gone to play for Australia in the Olympics, but he hasn't been offered a contract." Carr made 107 appearances for United following his transfer from Tottenham almost four years ago, while Ramage played 68 games for the club, but made no starts this season.
