Kilmarnock Boss Steve Clarke Says Greg Stewart’s Aberdeen Move Smells of ‘Bullshit’

Kilmarnock Boss Steve Clarke Says Greg Stewart’s Aberdeen Move Smells of ‘Bullshit’

Kilmarnock manager Steve Clarke has revealed his disappointment following Greg Stewart’s move to Aberdeen earlier this week, claiming there’s a smell of ‘bullshit’ surrounding the deal.

Stewart was one of Killie’s outstanding performers in the first-half of the campaign, and played a big role in guiding the Ayrshire club to their current position of third in the Premiership table – just one point off the summit.

However, Stewart was only on a season-long loan from Birmingham City and he was recalled by the English Championship side last week – only to complete a shock loan switch to the Dons a couple of days later.

After watching his side win 2-0 against Forfar in the Scottish Cup fourth-round yesterday, Clarke said via the Sun: “I only want to talk about players who are committed to Kilmarnock and want to play for us.

“If I am honest, the whole deal had a slightly strange smell right from the very start, but that happens in football.

“So we’ll move on and I’ll work with players who want to be here and, hopefully, they do just as well in the second-half of the season.”

When prompted to clarify what he meant by a strange smell, Clarke replied: “Bulls***.

“I am not talking about the player here. It’s not the player. It’s the deal.

“But the deal is private and what happens when you speak with other clubs stays private. You can work it out. Look at the deal.”

What do you make of Clarke’s comments? Is he right to be angry about how the deal went down?

And how much will Stewart be missed in the second-half of the campaign?
