A CHEEKY Newcastle United fan appeared to have a laugh at his fellow supporters' expense on Monday.

Relegation-threatened Toon were left disappointed to only get a point against Manchester United at St James' Park, as they dominated despite being heavy underdogs.

Allan Saint-Maximin gave Toon the lead after just seven minutes but Edinson Cavani rescued a point for the visitors.

Newcastle were undoubtedly the side that deserved to take all of the points, but despite a jam-packed crowd roaring them on, they were unable to find a late winner.

And with Toon playing so well, despite only winning once in the Premier League all season, fans couldn't pull themselves away from the action even when leaving their seats.

Well… that was until a naughty prankster cut their night short.

A hilarious clip has now emerged of supporters standing in the St James' concourse during the dying stages of the clash watching the closing stages on television.

No doubt in an attempt to beat matchday traffic, the crafty members of the Toon Army thought they could see out the final seconds before making a dash for the car.

But somehow one fan managed to get hold of a remote that worked for the concourse TVs, and they were filmed switching off the televisions as others watched on.

And his actions were met with huge frustration as roars of disgust went up as each tele was turned off - much to the joker's amusement.

Now supporters will have to wait until Sunday to see their team back in action when they visit Southampton.

That was after Thursday's Prem match at Everton was called off after the Magpies were left with just ELEVEN senior players for the game.

A combination of positive coronavirus test results and a spate of injuries has led to the postponement.
