Fans of the relegated club have called on club owner, Karl Oyston, to restore the statue of the ex-player.

A fans’ group was preparing to lay club memorabilia around the statue that is situated outside of the ground on Saturday but it has allegedly been taken down to thwart this action.

Demonstration organisers have also claimed that the club were willing to take legal action in order to stop the fans gaining access to the statue before the game.

However, reports suggest that nobody from Blackpool or its owners were able to comment on the events that have recently happened.

A demonstration against the Blackpool owners was due to take place around the statue before the clubs last home game on Saturday, and with the news of the recent events surfacing, it is sure to fire the fans up even more than they already are.

If Blackpool were to lose at home on Saturday, it would mean that the already relegated side would finish with the least number of points that has been recorded in the Football League Championship.
