Former Newcastle United boss Glenn Roeder is delighted to see the club back in Europe.

Roeder feels the Toon can handle a Europa League campaign next season.

He told the Evening Chronicle: "For me when it comes to Newcastle United the supporters come first.

"And I'm so glad that they have been able to give them those European nights once again.

"It is the very least they deserve.

"Of course they were in the chase for the Champions League at one stage, but if you asked many fans if they'd have settled for the Europa League they wouldn't have sniffed at that chance. I think they'll get to the group stages like we did last time.

"And then it becomes a fantastic adventure for the fans."
