Haq open to offers
SCOTLAND star Majid Haq has issued a come-and-get-me offer to the country’s leading clubs after his latest snub by Clydesdale.
All-rounder Haq lost the captaincy of the Titwood club at the end of last season despite leading them to a league and cup double for the first time in almost 40 years.
Despite feeling stabbed in the back by team-mates and club officials, Scotland’s record cap holder and wicket-taker was prepared to stay and help the team defend their titles.
However, Haq has now decided to quit in disgust after he was snubbed as club officials received the team of the year prize at Glasgow Sport’s awards ceremony last week.
He said: “I wasn’t even invited to the event which I regard as another pathetic snub from the Clydesdale hierarchy.
“Celebrating last season’s success without the captain present is frankly a joke and probably the final nail in the coffin of my Clydesdale career.
“It’s a shame because I had eight great seasons there and always gave everything for the team.
“There are also a few young lads coming through the junior section who I’ve enjoyed encouraging and coaching but enough is enough.
“I’m open to offers and am ready for a new challenge.”
Haq’s availability is sure to alert clubs on both sides of the country as well as south of the border.
