A SCOTTISH football team’s supporters have been trolled after their online fundraising effort to buy an on-loan striker generated just £5.
So when Birmingham decided to take Stewart back they set up a fundraising target of £500,000 to buy him outright.
But the campaign has folded after a few days with just £5 raised – just 0.00001% of the target.
A link to the page was posted on a Rangers fans’ forum, where the campaign was torn to shreds.
Steve A Stevens said: “F what? Lol.”
ElBarrileteCosmico commented: “They could just use the £700,000 fee we gave them for Jordan Jones, no wait, they refused that and we’re getting him for free.
“Scottish football – hating itself to death.”
LoneRanger said: “Just because you can raise funds for the transfer doesn’t mean yer club can afford his wages.”
Commodore Carbuncle said: “I’m going to donate 10p so that I can type lolza on the page.”
Konkey Dong commented: “Walloper. There’s a really good fundraising campaign they could get involved with now that I think of it, we do it all the time, it’s called fans going to the games and supporting the team financially.”
Stirling-born Stewart, who previously played for Dundee and Aberdeen, had become a fan favourite as Killie’s remarkable season has seen them sitting third in the Scottish Premiership.
However, Birmingham City manager, Gary Monk has used a clause in the striker’s contract which will take him back to the English Championship side.
The Killie fans’ fundraising page stated: “Greg Stewart is one of the best players to have graced Rugby Park in recent years.
“Losing him is a huge blow to our title challenge and diminishes the chances of a team being able to break Celtic’s current monopoly on the title.
“Please donate so that we can get this majestic player to the Theatre of Pies for good.”
