Mike Ashley Caught Giving The Big V To Angry Newcastle Supporters

Mike Ashley Caught Giving The Big V To Angry Newcastle Supporters

Newcastle United have had a rocky start to the Premier League season so far, but that does not mean that club owner Mike Ashley has turned a blind eye to it.

The 54-year-old billionaire Brit took Magpies manager Rafa Benítez and his players to dinner on Wednesday, probably in the hope that he could try and create some much-needed unity between everyone at the club.

Newcastle fans, on the other hand, were not having any of that.

They turned up to the Rialto restaurant in Ponteland, Newcastle, to make their presence felt at the occasion, voicing their fierce opposition towards Ashley and the direction that the club has taken under his reign.

Club supporters could be heard chanting either "We want Ashley out" or "Where's the money gone?"

When the Magpies owner left the restaurant -- met with loud boos from fans, of course -- 32-year-old Mark Bell captured footage of Ashley sticking up two fingers at supporters from inside his car.

Check it out below:

"I was there, as I live opposite the restaurant that they were eating in," Bell told SPORTbible. "Fans were shouting, 'Ashley out! And where's the money gone?'

"And I didn't realise he gave [us] the V until I watched [the footage] back! Plenty of police present for him leaving, so [it was] pointless trying anything anyway."

It's not the first time that fans have called out Ashley for the different problems that the club has experienced this season.

During Newcastle vs Leicester City last week, the supporters inside St James' Park chanted against him, though the Sports Direct founder didn't do himself any favours with his response.

The Magpies are in the relegation zone at the moment, with Benítez's side yet to win a single match in the Premier League this season.
