Newcastle Legend Alan Shearer Takes Those Who Mock His Legacy on Twitter Very Seriously

Alan Shearer isn’t the sort of guy you want to poke fun at on Twitter, especially if you want a light-hearted airy fairy response from the former Newcastle United hit man.

The 47-year-old, a successful pundit on BBC’s Match of the Day, was the subject of a classic ‘caption this image’ Tweet this afternoon from @FootyAccums.
