Dave Clelland MP tabled a Commons motion asking Ashley to reconsider his plans to sell the naming rights to Newcastle United’s stadium.

He claimed the stadium was symbolic of the game, its supporters’ loyalty and that it has been “an integral part of the city since 1892“.

The club, predictably, has declined to comment.

I really can’t imagine Ashley will take too much notice.

The report comes from the BBC. Not much else to report on this just now.
