Club lets fans vote whether goalkeeper should get a new contract

Scottish club Livingston bizarrely lets fans vote – via a Twitter poll – whether their goalkeeper should get a new contract or not.

That man is, 37 year old back-up shot stopper Gary Maley, whose contract expires next month.

In a poll with over one hundred thousand votes cast, Livi said: “Quite possibly a football first but we’re giving you the chance to decide on the future of goalkeeper @Maley1Gary.

“With his contract expiring next month, we’re leaving it in the hands of the fans as to whether or not we offer ‘Stretch’ an extension.

“Stay or go – you decide!”

There was a wide range of responses in the replies section of the tweet too, some gave a cheeky comment and others may have left the player feeling downbeat.

Livingston defender Marvin Bartley dived in with: “He said he wants to leave and dislikes every team and their fans in Scotland! Feel free to vote whatever you want though.”

Assistant manager David Martindale added: “It’s time to hang your gloves up big fella, you had a good run at it. Scott McDonald penalty save at Tannadice a glorious high in your career, the only high tbf. Take care but we have to move on.”

One concerned member of the public tweeting: “Wow!! I would hate it if my employers did this to me. Surely this is a wind up??”

Another startled onlooker added: “I’d phone your lawyer Livi. This is probably illegal in employment law.”

As of 2pm on Tuesday the 26th of May, around 60% want him to stay at the club a little while longer.
