Club Ask Fans To Vote In Poll Deciding Whether To Keep Goalkeeper
In a truly bizarre but potentially revolutionary idea, a football club have decided to allow the fans to decide whether to keep one of their players.
Livingston, who play in the Scottish Premiership, might just have changed the game with their post on Twitter last night.
With his contract due to expire and the season finishing prematurely due to COVID-19, the club placed the future of goalkeeper Galey Maley in the hands of fans on Twitter.
Supporters could either vote, "Yes - offer him a contract" or "No - get him out" and already there's been over 120,000 votes cast.
And it's pretty conclusive that fans want the 37-year-old, nicknamed 'Stretch' to remain at the Almondvale Stadium. 66% have voted in favour of keeping Maley, with 34% wanting him gone.
The poll has another day to run on it before Maley finds out what the final decision is.
The innovative method has garnered a mixed response from fans, with some questioning its legality. But plenty saw the funny side, with Maley's teammate Marvin Bartley joking asking fans to stop voting for him to stay.
