The Newcastle defender was hit with a bolt thrown from the crowd during the Europa League clash but recovered to score his side's only goal as the Magpies earned a draw

Newcastle defender Ryan Taylor has slammed Atromitos supporters after being struck with a missile from the crowd during his side's 1-1 draw with the Greek outfit on Thursday.

The 28-year-old was hit with a bolt as he lined up a set-piece but recovered to score the Magpies' goal and put his side in pole position in the Europa League qualifying tie.

"I think their fans let themselves down. I went over for a corner and I got hit on the back with a bolt," Taylor told Sky Sports.

"I didn't say anything, but it wasn't nice. There's no place in football for that. From that corner onwards, I think they had something against me."

Teenager Adam Campbell become the youngest player to feature for the Tyneside club in Europe following his appearance as a second-half substitute against Atromitos.

And the 17-year-old expressed his delight at playing, saying: "It was the proudest day of my life, definitely, by far.

"When we came and I knew we had 19 men for an 18-man squad, I thought I'd probably miss out. I was here just to enjoy the experience.

"I would have had I played or not, it wouldn't have made a difference. But to actually get in the squad and get on knowing I'd be the youngest player was amazing.

"Knowing that I have my own little record for the club I support - I can't put that into words. I can't describe what it means to me."
