Bruno Guimaraes' tears played down, Jonas Gutierrez confession and Sean Longstaff makes history

Newcastle United star Bruno Guimaraes shed tears at the final whistle on an emotionally charged afternoon at St James' Park.

Whether it is Bruno's last stand for Newcastle nobody knows, but what we can ascertain is that Eddie Howe has made it clear that he wants the Brazil international to remain on Tyneside and Guimaraes himself seems happy and at home. What could change that is if his release clause of £100million is triggered in the coming weeks.

For all the talk about Paris Saint-Germain, that appears to have been dampened down and the proof will be in the pudding come the end of June when his release clause runs out, to test if Man City are genuine with their interest. One fan posted on Chronicle Live last night: "Bruno's tears have me very worried about his future."

But his show of emotion is no different to any time he's had a game he's not happy with or Newcastle have not got the result they were looking for. As he sat slumped at the end, he was helped up by team-mates but the decisive test of a player with huge ambition now lies ahead.

Sean Longstaff makes history without even realising

The Geordie midfielder was on hand to score his eighth of the season and hand Newcastle a valuable equaliser at the Gallowgate End. His tally of eight gives him an outside tilt of hitting double figures, the type of total that used to have the likes of Rob Lee and Gary Speed talked about as midfield dynamos.

Longstaff's strike ensured Newcastle have managed to score in every one of their league fixtures at home for the first time since 1958-59. Given Newcastle have already scored their most goals in a Premier League campaign ever, better than Kevin Keegan and Sir Bobby Robson's teams, you have to take your hat off to them.

Emotional Jonas Gutierrez makes a return to St James' Park for the first time since heroics of 2015

Jonas bravely battled both Cancer and relegation in 2015 and won nine years ago. The Argentina international has been back on Tyneside this week catching up with old pals and savouring his first return to St James' Park since his goal in the 2-0 win over West Ham that kept John Carver's team up.

A welled-up Jonas told reporters: "It's so special to be back. It was one of the best places I've ever been.

"It feels like home, to come back to see the people around the city and the stadium, they give their love to me. I am so glad that I have that reception from them, I will never forget it."

Sadly, Newcastle could not give Jonas the win on his return, but he was able to see a club transformed at St James' Park. And while Europe is not guaranteed, it is a far cry from the club he saved from the drop under Mike Ashley.
