Robson releases 13 Magpies

Glass Scottish midfielder Glass requested a transfer


Newcastle United manager Bobby Robson has begun his St James Park clear-out by placing 13 players on the transfer list.

They include Scottish winger Stephen Glass, who requested to be transfered last week, and Croatian striker Silvio Maric.

Former Magpies boss Kenny Dalglish signed Glass for 650,000, but injuries had limited the midfielder to just two starts this season.


It has taken Robson four months to wield the axe
Glass felt that he had not been getting many first-team opportunities under the management of Robson.

Maric was signed by Ruud Gullit for 3.5m, but has failed to live up to fulfill his promise.

The Croatian has made few starts since making his debut last February, appearing only once for the club since December.

The other players who have been tranfer-listed are goalkeepers John Karelse and Lionel Perez, defender Carl Serrant, striker Gary Brady, who signed from Spurs, and midfielder Des Hamilton.

The rest of the list is made up of reserve-team players, Ian Martin, James Coppinger, Steven Caldwell, Paul Talbot, Paul Arnison and Stuart Elliott.
