Nolan apologises to Toon fans

Newcastle captain Kevin Nolan has apologised to his club's fans for praising Andy Carroll's move to Liverpool, admitting he is "getting quite sick of the whole saga''.

Carroll promises to clean up image

Reds fan Nolan was interviewed by Liverpool TV about his friend's £35million move from Newcastle to Anfield this week, saying he was "delighted'' Carroll was joining a "fantastic club''.

Now Nolan has been forced to backtrack and explain his position after the comments caused consternation among Newcastle supporters.

"If fans don't like it, I apologise,'' he said. "It was never meant to affect them. But Liverpool is a great club and everyone knows that. There's no-one more disappointed than me. Not only have we lost a top player but I've lost a good mate who was very close.''

Nolan added: "To be honest, I'm getting quite sick of the whole Andy Carroll saga. I just want to put it to bed and get on with it. The last thing I want is to start upsetting our fans because they have been brilliant.''
