Staff had to jump in and intervene, with some players also venting their frustration at Steve Bruce's tactics in the dressing room.

The report adds that a 'significant number' of the squad want the new owners to step in and replace Bruce before their next Premier League match against Crystal Palace.

It is thought that the dressing room cannot believe the situation is being allowed to fester as the 'Magpies' currently occupy a relegation spot in the table.

Bruce's position at St James' Park remains extremely uncertain with Amanda Staveley believed to be looking at sacking him following their takeover.

A host of managerial names have since been linked with the Newcastle hot-seat, including Derby County manager Wayne Rooney.

But the treatment of Bruce has been slammed by Gary Neville, who classed it as employment abuse in a furious rant on Monday Night Football.

He said: "This thing with Steve Bruce is totally wrong.

"If it was any other walk of life, it would be classed as employment abuse. Bruce needs clarity.

"The leaks in the last week, two weeks, four weeks. Bruce deserves to be treated with decency. Stop using Steve Bruce as a shield for criticism as a football club."

Jamie Carragher added: "Steve Bruce has got a real problem. The ownership had a really poor week.

"They messed up the managerial situation right away. An ownership should not be coming in and feeding journalists stories (about managers being sacked). It's not been a great start for them.

"They've conceded more goals than anyone in the Premier League, this back four is a Championship back four - they're not good enough for this level.

"They've got really poor defenders and that's a big problem for them. They need three or four defenders in January to stay up, there's no doubt about that."
