Apparently a lot of Newcastle fans were not happy seeing Steve Bruce smile with Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer when the two sides met last weekend.
Newcastle lost 3-1 and when the cameras went on both managers after the full-time whistle when Bruce was seen smiling at his former Manchester United team-mate.
It was a tedious question from the reporter and Bruce, who presumably felt cornered by it, responded with a fiery tone.
The reporter said: “Fans were bit happy to see you laughing with Ole on TV after the game.”
Bruce replied: “A lot of fans or is that you? I’ve known Ole for 20 years.”

The former United defender puts the reporter in his place by going on to explain that he smiled because Solskjaer had complimented Bruce’s Newcastle side after the match.
Do Newcastle fans and hacks not have other things to worry about right now?
