In light of this current viral outbreak, people have been encouraged to take part in social distancing, and the Toon have tried to get their followers to do the same by posting an image of the Premier League’s top ever goalscorers.

Who is Newcastle's top goalscorer in the league?

Alan Shearer leads the way with 260 and behind him is Wayne Rooney on 208.

Separating Rooney and Shearer is a ball that has been struck by the former Newcastle man, and the image is accompanied by a message that says ‘Premier League goals. Maintain social distance.’

This has gone down brilliantly with these Toon fans who love this tweet and Shearer.

What do we think?

This is some superb work from the Newcastle media team, and we think that it is a good way of mocking Rooney.

It also attracted the attention of some Manchester United supporters who were not happy.

In these uncertain times, we think it is good to see Newcastle still producing entertaining content.
