A group of Aberdeen fans managed to get a fake manager listed by a bookmaker as one of the contenders to replace Derek McInnes at Pittodrie.
The fans created a Wikipedia page for 45-year-old Ross Nicholson, which has since been removed.
His current club was listed as ‘Diznei Exzest’.

One supporter claimed he managed to place a £5 bet on Nicholson at odds of 7-1.
The Dons are searching for a new boss after parting company with boss Derek McInnes on Monday night.
We were wondering who Ross Nicholson was. Thought he may have been an up and coming coach at Aberdeen… 😂 https://t.co/wL6WY7rip9

Meanwhile, Kemnay Amateurs have issued a firm message to the Dons that they won’t be parting company with their management duo anytime soon.
We have this evening declined a request from @AberdeenFC to speak to our management team of Brian and Bob. Brian has decking to finish and Bob’s watching coaching videos on YouTube! We’ll be making no further comment at this time…
