Newcastle United boss Steve Bruce has insisted that he won't resign from his job after being eliminated from Carabao Cup by Championship side Brentford.
Bruce cut a dejected figure after their quarterfinal defeat and when asked about his angry reaction in his post-match presser, the former United defender said that the club supporters were entitled to their opinion.
“I'm a resilient so-and-so so I'll need to be ready for what's coming my way. The supporters are entitled to their opinion and I accept that.
"Unfortunately, we haven't done enough, so we have to accept what is coming our way and get ready for what is a huge challenge ahead of us in the Premier League.
"I stand by what I said when I walked in the door-I picked the team I thought was going be good enough to win the match. Unfortunately, Brentford played very, very well on the night."

"I'm hugely disappointed because we've missed a wonderful opportunity to take the club into a semi final. We simply haven't played well enough to win the tie. We should have had enough to win the tie - that's why I went as strong as I did." pic.twitter.com/NInkNqyseK
