Jamie McKim joked that Johnstone Burgh fans must be delighted with the job he is doing at Keanie Park after not one solitary supporter turned up to a Q and A session with the gaffer at the weekend.

Club secretary Ricky Cantwell announced that, following some discontent amongst the Burgh faithful, McKim would open himself up to fans ahead of Saturday's friendly with Ardeer Thistle.

A small minority of fans have been vocal online in calling for McKim to step down after a disappointing season in the West Region League Two that will see them finish in the bottom half of the table.

McKim had previously called for patience from the fans, insisting the rebuilding job at Burgh was never going to be a quick fix.

The gaffer was open to the Q and A session to give supporters the chance to get to know him and his coaching staff as well as get an insight into his plans for next season and beyond, but no one took him up on that offer at the weekend with McKim left questioning the motive behind some of the comments on social media.

Speaking to Gazette Sport, he said: “The fans must be delighted with me because no one turned up to the Q and A on Saturday. The fans aren’t slow to make comments online so now I’m questioning whether they’re making the comments with the right intentions and in the best interests of the club as they had the chance to come and speak to me directly.

“I don’t think a lot of the fans realise how big a job it is to turn this around. Burgh have been a massive club with success over the years but it’s not easy to come in and start from scratch, which I believe is what we did last year. It’s not easy and it was never going to change over night.

"We signed 20 boys last year without time to assess them as people. I made a mistake there, I admit that and I could have answered for that in the Q and A, but I’ve learned from it and will take that experience into next season.”
