Hospitalised Kinnear in good spirits after win

Newcastle United manager Joe Kinnear will remain in hospital over the weekend, although tests revealed no serious problem with the ex-Wimbledon manager. The 62-year-old was admitted to a Midlands hospital early on Saturday after feeling unwell at the team hotel ahead of the Magpies's' 3-2 victory at West Bromwich Albion. And a club spokesman has revealed Kinnear will remain under observation for a 'couple of days' before being allowed to return to Tyneside. "Joe Kinnear was admitted to hospital on Saturday morning after complaining of high blood pressure," the spokesman said. "He underwent a series of tests during the day and the subsequent results have shown he is okay. As a precaution, Joe will remain in hospital for observation for a couple of days and will then be discharged." Kinnear himself added: "I would like to thank everyone who has been asking how I have been feeling. Although I missed the game, I had my grandson giving me a full commentary on the match. "It was a great win for us and I told Chris well done and to pass on my congratulations to the players when he came to see me on Saturday evening." NEWCASTLE FANS!
