​Newcastle fans paid tribute to late 'keeper Pavel Srnicek on Saturday with chants of his name before the game with Arsenal. 

The Geordie's went on to lose 1-0 on an emotional day for the North East club who lost a club legend during the week. 

The former Magpies shotstopper passed away aged just 47-years-old on Thursday after suffering a cardiac arrest whilst in his native Czech Republic in late December.

The decision was taken to switch off his life support machine after Srnicek had been in an induced coma since suffering a cardiac arrest while out running in his hometown of Ostrava before Christmas.

Fans will fondly remember the goalie, who was somewhat of a fashion icon in the nineties for Newcastle. 

Srnicek, who also played for Portsmouth and West Ham during his career in English football, was remembered at the Emirates before the game as the Toon squad wore customised tops.

The current squad saw it as their way of paying tribute to the club's former star by wearing 'Pavel is a Geordie' t-shirts before kick-off.


The fans too paid their respects to the 'keeper too, by singing his name loud and proud before the game.
