Burn came as a guest after Newcastle’s game against Luton and was greeted with a deadpan joke upon arrival. Shearer remarked on his The Rest Is Football podcast: “I did (make fun of Burn). I couldn’t resist. I said it was kind of Dan Burn to show up tonight, more than he did at 3 p.m. today.

“I mentioned that we’d all had them. He raised his hand and said, ‘Yeah, I had one (a mare) today’. He took it the correct way, and we all laughed.”

While the star-studded bash was going on, former Manchester City defender Micah Richards took over as a pundit on Match of the Day. The 35-year-old smiled as he explained how miserably Burn performed, maintaining he did his best not to bury him.

“We’ve all been there as players,” Richards explained. “You don’t want to dig him out, especially around the team, but he’s in all of the clips I’ve received! Let’s just say I looked after him.
