Some could argue: ‘the sooner we see the back of Albert Luque the better for Newcastle United’.

But Luque’s team-mate Nobby Solano says Glenn Roeder could find himself a new Toon hero if he throws the Spaniard in against Celta on Thursday in the UEFA Cup.

Solano: ‘Albert’s had some very hard times here, but I think he’ll get his chance and I know he’d love to play, especially against a Spanish team.

‘He wants to prove to the manager what he can do, he’s waiting for his chance. He’s a great team-mate and someone who smiles all the time.

‘He’s been low but all he wants is the chance to show the manager he can be a success.’
