NEWCASTLE legend Alan Shearer has told VAR where it should go, in not-so-nice terms.
The Magpies saw a goal were disallowed in their 2-1 win over Nottingham Forest when Sean Longstaff was deemed to be offside in the build-up of Elliot Anderson's headed effort.
However, the ball was played by two Forest defenders BEFORE hitting Longstaff.

The Premier League all-time top goalscorer later added: "I’ve sat in the stand as a fan. I’ve sat in the studio as a pundit.

Shearer was up in arms online with the decision, writing: "What a pile of s*** the handball law is. #pathetic."

He told SunSport: "The offside law is an ass.
"It’s a nonsense decision (Longstaff offside). Surely it’s a deliberate play by Forest defender Felipe?
"But goals being ruled out for something like this does not sit right with me."
