SPFL side announce key man’s contract with VERY rude post as fans say ‘huge if true’ – and even Rylan’s got involved
TV presenter Rylan Clark couldn’t help getting involved when Championship side Raith Rovers announced a key man’s contract extension with a VERY rude post.
Former Falkirk star Liam Dick has emerged as a key man for the Kirkcaldy side and Ian Murray’s men were clearly happy to keep him involved as he penned a new one-year contract.

The contract extension post sent the internet into meltdown
Whether or not the club banked on their tweet being viewed no fewer than 5MILLION times or not is another matter – as Rylan got in on the action.
And it’s all because of the interesting way they phrased the post.
They wrote: “ Dick extension.”
“We’re delighted to announce Liam Dick has renewed his contract for another year, keeping him at the club until June 2024.
“Liam’s strong defending and versatility has been vital in his 80 appearances for the club, scoring four goals.
Let’s just say it was a post – and a HASHTAG – which raised a few eyebrows, not least from Rylan Clark who is the face of cinch’s SPFL sponsorship.
He quickly responded: “Fine with it.”
And footy fans from all over the UK rushed into the comments to make their own jokes – as the post gained huge traction for a fairly routine contract extension.
Raith were delighted that their post reached 5m views
One wrote: “Huge if true”
Another said: “Best player announcement yet/”
A third wrote: “Player sponsored by Viagra.”
A fourth said simply: “That’s massive/”
A fifth said: “It’s great to have a hard man at the back.”
Raith took to social media again this morning to say they were delighted with the engagement they had got on their social media post – and that the player and his sponsors were all equally delighted.
They wrote: “Well, things escalated last night.
“Over 5,000,000 people now know Liam Dick extended his contract for another season.”
