Newcastle United defeated Cardiff City 3-0 to relegate the promoted Bluebirds at the first time of asking.
The Magpies took the lead in the first half through Shola Ameobi, before Loic Remy and Steven Taylor added gloss to the scoreline with late strikes.
Ameobi headed in Moussa Sissoko’s cross after 18 minutes, and despite Cardiff pushing forward with Wilfried Zaha looking influential for the first time, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men could not find an equaliser.
Remy finished well from inside the box before assisting Steven Taylor from a corner.
Cardiff City must now regroup and try to gain promotion at the first attempt next season.
