Don Gailer returned from France and told ITV he was extremely disappointed about the way the situation been handled by the club. He said it should have been discussed face to face not while he was out of the country. But he thanked the fans for their support and kind wishes.
He added: "I have been reading the fan forum pages and they've helped me feel a bit better about the situation. Most of them are as shocked as I was about the change in events.
"The board have handled the situation very badly, they could have waited for me to return so we could have sat down to discussed the issues. They now have to answer their fans."
