Roeder Avoids Irish Battle

Roeder Avoids Irish Battle

So much so he has withdrawn him from the international match this week.

Despite Newcastle paying Given's wages, Ireland were still entitled to include the player in their squad for the match in Dublin against Holland.

Roeder: 'I've spoken with Steve Staunton and he has allowed us to withdraw Shay from the Ireland squad for the game against Holland next week.

'Instead Shay will remain on Tyneside and have treatment for a slight back problem. I was very grateful to Steve for allowing Shay to stay here and receive treatment.'
