Kinnear exit no surprise - Shearer

Former Newcastle legend Alan Shearer says he is "not surprised" by Joe Kinnear's resignation from the club, after less than eight months in the role.

Shearer, who scored a record 206 goals for Newcastle, tells BBC's Match of the Day 2 that Kinnear was a "strange appointment" in the first place, adding that "maybe him resigning is a way of saying he didn't do his job, but I'm not sure what his job was anyway."

The Magpies failed to sign a player on a permanent deal during Kinnear's spell at the club.
