A new statue paying tribute to Alan Shearer has been unveiled outside the Newcastle stadium of St James’ Park, but even Scott with his limited knowledge of football isn’t sure about the likeness to the footballing legend.
Current Magpies manager Rafa Benitez said: “The statue of him at St James’ Park is a perfect tribute to a true club legend.”
However not everyone is in agreement with Rafa over the 9ft 6ins bronze effigy.

It was only last month an artist unveiled this sand statue of One Direction’s Zayn Malik, prompting much ridicule from Twitter users.
