Airdrie FC RIP

I feel really sorry for the fans of Airdrie FC. Today the club went into liquidation after failing to find a buyer to pay off nearly £3 million of debt.

There assets will now be sold, this includes their ground and the name Airdire FC.

It must heatbreaking to for the fans of the club to see it wound up after 124 years in existance.

I only hope the club will be re-formed and will one day get back to the Scottish First Division.

    My heart really goes out to all airdrie fans past and present, to those who followed the club passionatly, this must come as a blow uncomprehendable to those of us whom are fortunate not to be faced with the situation. A few monthes ago i tried to consider how i'd feel if it were my club, i really don't think i could grasp the emotions involved and i really hope i never have to.

    It is a sad reflection of football in the modern era when a club can be allowed to go out of buisness for 3 million, whilst another see's fit to purchase one player for 28 million, yet again the fans are shat on from a great height <IMG SRC="frown.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">

    I echo dan's words that hopefully one day aidrie will once again find themselves playing league football, otherwise its a tragedy of real significance <IMG SRC="frown.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">

    Good luck and all the best to everyone associated with Airdrie FC
