The exact reason for Donachie’s suspension has not been revealed but Sky Sports alleges the former Scotland international, now reserve team manager on Tyneside, struck a player.


Donachie joined Newcastle in 2009 and has held a number of positions within the youth set-up at St James’ Park.


The 62-year-old started his playing days at Manchester City, spending 12 years at what was then Maine Road. Donachie, a left-back, also played for United States side Portland Timbers, Norwich City and Burnley before ending his career at Oldham in 1990.


He was assistant manager to Joe Royle at the Latics and followed Royle to Everton, working under Royle again when Royle became City manager.


Donachie joined up with Royle for a third time at Ipswich Town and had a brief spell under Nigel Spackman at Millwall, later replacing Spackman as manager, spending a year in charge at the London club.


His playing days also took in a number of games for Scotland, playing 35 times between 1972 and 1978.
