Steve McClaren branded it the worst performance of the season since taking over at Newcastle United.
The Newcastle head coach was helpless to stop a seventh Premier League defeat of the season for the struggling Magpies, a 3-0 defeat to Leicester City.

Leicester manager Claudio Ranieri admits Jamie Vardy's goal-laden form is keeping the smile on his face after the England international scored for a record-equalling 10th game in a row as the Foxes moved top of the Premier League.
Vardy moved alongside former Manchester United striker Ruud van Nistelrooy, who managed to find the net in 10 successive Premier League fixtures in 2003, by firing home in first-half stoppage-time in a 3-0 success over Newcastle.
