Magpies cool on Bellamy row
Newcastle United striker Craig Bellamy
Newcastle say they will not take any action against striker Craig Bellamy after the striker was involved in a bust-up with coach John Carver.

The pair clashed at Newcastle airport ahead of the Uefa Cup trip to Mallorca.

"It was nothing more than a push-and-shove incident, the type you see in the playground all the time," a Newcastle spokeswoman told BBC Sport.

"Newcastle United will not be taking the matter any further and are fully focused on the Uefa Cup game."

The spokeswoman added: "They spoke a while after the incident and are the best of friends again."

It is not the first time that Bellamy and Carver have been at odds with one another - they came to blows at Newcastle's training ground last season.

The Welsh striker has also found trouble off the field, having been involed in a drunk and disorderly incident in a Cardiff nightclub last March.

Sir Bobby Robson's number two Carver was charged by the FA on Monday for protesting to officials after United's 1-1 draw at Birmingham in January
