We all know that Newcastle United chairman Mike Ashley likes to cut costs but this one could be considered a new low. Recently released players Ryan Taylor and Jonas Gutierrez revealed yesterday how John Carver called Taylor to let him know that his contract wouldn’t be getting renewed – and then asked the dumped Scouser to pass the phone to the Argentinian to give the same news to him.

“John Carver rang me and told me the club weren’t going to offer me a new deal,” Taylor told Sky Sports News. So I had a chat with him and then he asked me to pass the phone to Jonas, which was unbelievable.”

“He was made to do it, he obviously was upset in doing it. I spoke to him and he seemed upset about telling two good pros who have been there a long time that it’s come to an end. I can’t really blame John because he’s under instructions on what to do.”

Jonas added: “The more important thing is that they can pick up a phone and call me or call my agent and say ‘listen, thank you for everything, we are going to release you’.”
