Lincoln chairman lashes out at “b******t” transfer rumours

Clive Nates took no prisoners

Lincoln City chairman Clive Nates took to Twitter to squash transfer rumours with an unfiltered response.

A rumour emerged on social media that winger Harry Anderson was on his way to Hull City after the Imps had accepted a bid, but that was quickly dismissed.

Chairman Clive Nates responded by calling the source a “b******t” transfer rumour account.

Safe to say Clive Nates didn’t take too kindly to the rumour.

He followed up the tweet by sarcastically suggesting he and vice chairman Jay Wright set up their own account, calling it “Rumours Created at The Strugglers”.

Imps fans collectively laughed at the brutal honesty of the tweet, praising the chairman for addressing the rumours.

One fan said: “Outstanding, and yes they would [take you seriously]” while another was much more to the point, saying: “Clive. Love you.”

Despite the Imps being busy in the transfer market this summer, it looks as though Harry Anderson won’t be leaving any time soon.

Lincoln City have made nine signings this summer, as Michael Appleton prepares for his first full season in charge of the Imps.

Lincoln kick off the new League One campaign on Saturday, September 12 at home to Oxford United, but first face a Carabao Cup tie with Crewe Alexandra on September 5.
