Britain’s youngest EuroMillions winner Jane Park has offered to pay her beloved Hibs – for one of their stars to retire.
Park, 22, appeared to lose patience with Steven Whittaker during her team’s draw with Celtic on Sunday.
She tweeted Hibs’ official account on Sunday afternoon saying: “How much for Whittaker to retire. Can I pay?”
Her post attracted a mixed response, with some Hibees in agreement and some defending their player.
Whittaker,33, is enjoying a second spell at Easter Road, having coming through the youth ranks before spending five years in the first team. He also has 31 caps for Scotland.
He moved to Rangers for £2m before moving to England with Norwich City before making a heralded return at the start of this season.
But some fans, including Park, don’t seem to be too enamoured with his form so far.
Social media users were split in their reaction to Park’s offer.
A user named Lesley agreed, saying: “He’s absolutely p***.”
Another account said: “Never wanted him back, needs to go, slow as a week in the jail.”
Craig Wilson joined in and aimed criticism at Manchester City loanee Brandon Barker as well. He said: “Can you pay to take that waste of space Barker with him too.”
While a Norwich fan had some empathy.
Kieran Macklin said: “We was saying that in Norwich for years.”
However others were more supportive of the full back.
David Mudie replied: “Bit OTT. Not his best game today but up against the best winger in Scotland.”
Joe Donohoe echoed that view, saying: “Up against a class player today glad he doesn’t meet many more in this league.”
Park also saw the end of her winning streak of bets at the weekend.
She revealed to her followers that she had placed an in-play bet on Manchester United to beat Man City at odds of 12/1 when they were 1-0 down, adding “F****** mon the United.”
However, City went on to win the match 2-1 thanks to Nicolas Otamendi’s winning goal.
Park then tweeted: “That’s no what you want”, with angry emoji.
She had previously enjoyed success at the bookies, her last win being a £217.55 scoop on a four team football accumulator.
Earlier this year she made £584.18 from the three bets including darts and football.
While she made hundreds betting on the Scottish boxer Josh Taylor during his bout against fighting ace Ohara Davies.
And two weeks ago she won £348.63 from another four-fold accumulator, including Scottish sides St. Mirren and Inverness.
