Wrexham's new signing Steven Fletcher got rid of £260,000 supercar to prove a point

Wrexham's new signing Steven Fletcher got rid of £260,000 supercar to prove a point

Steven Fletcher posed alongside the expensive car back in 2015 and received criticism as a result.

Wrexham's new signing Steven Fletcher won't be driving a flash car to training over an incident which occured back in 2015.

The Red Dragons have brought in the former Burnley, Wolves, Sunderland and Marseille striker on a deal until the end of the season after striker Paul Mullin suffered a punctured lung in a friendly against Manchester United.

Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney's side looked at a number of targets and reportedly failed with a club-record

£450,000 bid for Harrogate Town’s Luke Armstrong on deadline day.

But on Thursday Wrexham announced a move for Fletcher, who links up with former teammate James McClean at the STok Racecourse Ground.

The 36-year-old has been around the block and has 53 Premier League goals to his name. But the Scotland international does not like to give the impression that he's "Billy Big Time".

That's because Fletcher felt the wrath of Sunderland supporters during the thick of a relegation fight when he was pictured posing alongside his £260,000 Lamborghini.

He claims he was "stitched up" by the car dealer he bought it off as the photo begun to do the rounds and ended up getting rid of the vehicle for a 4x4 following the backlash.

"We all make mistakes but I don’t regret buying my car," he said in 2016, as per the Daily Star.

"The fans gave me dog’s abuse for that, of course they did. It would have been worse had I tweeted the picture of myself beside this car but I didn’t. I got stick for standing beside my car posing for a picture.

"The guy I bought it through asked if he could have a picture of me. I agreed and two weeks later it fell into someone else’s hands and they tweeted it.

"People thought I was a Billy Big Time … they saw the Lamborghini and got the wrong idea about me. I had a reputation when I was younger for showing off stuff but I was brought up in a normal family."

Fletcher was a substitute for Wrexham's latest fixture in League Two as they faced Doncaster at home.
