The former England captain also gave an insight into his pre-match superstitions, claiming he never liked to score goals in the warm-up as it would limit his chances of scoring in a game 

Shearer said: ‘I didn’t like smashing the ball into the net in the warm-up. I felt if you put one in from 25 yards in the warm-up, your chances of doing it again half an hour later in the game were pretty slim. 

‘So I didn’t like that at all. I didn’t like having shooting session on the pitch.’

Shearer also used the opportunity to poke fun at his old rivals – Sunderland. When asked what the best thing about the club was, the former Newcastle player said: Is there anything good about Sunderland? The best thing is they’re in League One.’ 

To which Gary replied saying: ‘That’s brutal. Sorry to all the Sunderland fans watching this.’

Shearer has always spoke fondly about his time at Newcastle – even though he never won the title with the club. 

When asked his he would half his goal tally to have been crowned champions, he said ‘absolutely’. 

Shearer told Neville: ‘Oh 100 per cent. I would have just scored one goal if I could have won the title with Newcastle. Absolutely.’
