Pic Special: Statue For A Legend

On Sunday morning, Newcastle United unveiled a statue to legendary manager Sir Bobby Robson, outside the South-West corner of the stadium.

Ahead of the final home game of the season against Manchester City, Sir Bobby's widow Lady Elsie performed the unveiling of the bronze sculpture which pays tribute to the boss who spent five years in the Magpies' hotseat.

A host of former Newcastle players, as well as members of the Robson family and current manager Alan Pardew and his backroom team, were in attendance.

Another member of staff who served under Sir Bobby is long-standing Club Photographer Ian Horrocks, and he captured this gallery of the official unveiling ceremony exclusively for nufc.co.uk.
