Gutierrez fires parting shot at Mike Ashley

Jonas Gutierrez has fired a parting shot at Newcastle's owner, Mike Ashley, on social media.

Speaking on Twitter, he said: "Two things I learn from my illness how you can support a player (newcastle fans) and how you leave a player alone (newcastle owner)".

This comes after the club confirmed that his contract will not be renewed. Defender Ryan Taylor will also not be offered a new deal.

Newcastle United have declined to comment on the player's tweet.
