Scottish Club Raith Rovers extend relationship with star player Liam Dick - but fans are left blushing over cheeky contract announcement!

In a surprise move that has left football fans across the country blushing, Scottish club Raith Rovers have announced a one-year contract extension for their star player Liam Dick.

The club, who play in the Scottish Championship, took to Twitter to share the news, writing: "Dick extends further. We're delighted to announce Liam Dick has renewed his contract for another year, keeping him at the club until June 2025."

Dick's extension cause social media uproar

Unsurprisingly, the announcement went viral on social media, with fans quick to poke fun at the club's rather unfortunate phrasing.

"Solid signing that stiffens the defence. His penetrating runs forward may leave gaping holes but he always comes back into position," quipped one fan, while another joked: "I wish mine could."

"Not gonna lie, I wondered what I was reading at first!" added a third, as the comments section was flooded with amused reactions.

However, others were quick to praise Raith Rovers' social media team, with one fan writing: "Pay rise for Raith Rovers Twitter manager! Brilliant."

Meanwhile, another took a more cheeky approach, commenting: "Best known for his deep penetrating runs from a standing start."

Liam Dick, 28, has been a key player for Raith Rovers since joining the club in 2019. The versatile defender made 47 appearances last season, scoring one goal and providing four assists.
