DYLAN McGOWAN revealed today that the Hearts players have been stunned by the response of the club’s supporters in its hour of need.
After seeing their side plunged into administration, fans have been asked to fund a takeover bid through the Foundation of Hearts and back them financially in the interim by buying season and match tickets.
More than 7000 of them have signed up for the Foundation’s direct debit scheme and McGowan is hoping many more follow suit.
He said: “The players are amazed at what supporters have done for the club, and us as players in the last year or so. It’s been incredible and we cannot thank them enough for their support.
“What is being proposed gives supporters a real opportunity to eventually own the club they love, through the Foundation of Hearts, and I think that’s a great thing. When you invest as much money and emotion into a club, why shouldn’t you be part of what the future looks like?
“I hope as many supporters as possible, who can afford to do so, set up their Foundation of Hearts direct debit.”
