Real Madrid legend Iker Casillas praising Newcastle stopper Karl Darlow’s madness moment v Rotherham on Twitter

Newcastle completed the double over Rotherham towards the end of January in dominant fashion, beating the Championship strugglers 4-0. The result was never in much doubt with Newcastle being one of the best sides in the Championship and Rotherham being one of the worst of the lot this season.

Perhaps the biggest talking point of that game was ‘keeper Karl Darlow’s moment of madness that almost gave away a goal. Giving the ball away in his own area and being essentially left for dead, the shot stopper managed to scramble back and pull of an absolute blinder of a save that ensured he kept a clean-sheet.

Despite the moment that led to it, the save itself was a quality one. It recently got a stamp of approval from Spain and Real Madrid legend Iker Casillas. The Spaniard is no stranger to pulling off the occasional screamer every now and then, and sub-tweeted the video of Darlow’s save with his own approval.
