Laurent Robert's tumultuous Newcastle United career ended acrimoniously overnight when the 30-year-old was fined two weeks' wages for insulting
manager Graeme Souness.
The winger, a fans' favourite during his four years at the club since signing from French side Paris St Germain, will join Premiership rivals
Portsmouth this week on a season-long loan with a permanent two-year deal following when his contract at Newcastle expires. His move to the south
coast only comes into force on Friday and his current employers fired a parting shot at the talented Frenchman following a scathing attack on the
Magpies boss in Tuesday's Sun newspaper.
