An opportunist Leicester City supporter has come up with a secondary plan to try and trick the club into calling for Brendan Rodgers to be sacked this weekend.
Having written to the club in a bid to get a shout out for his 'grandma' Brenda Nout ahead of their Premier League clash against Crystal Palace – his £20 fee was then refunded.
Not giving up there as he looks to pile the pressure on the stumbling manager, Foxes fan Stu has been back in contact with the club looking to send a message to 'Zak Rodgers'.

Posting a clip to his Twitter account @stulcfc, Stu can be heard on the phone to the club while asking for his big screen message to send birthday wishes to seven-year-old 'Zak'.
However, shortly after the messages and clip went viral, Leicester reportedly blocked birthday announcements for the Palace fixture altogether.
One fan then laughed: "Just because a loyal fan wanted to wish their son Zak Rodgers and their mum Brenda Nout a happy birthday, shocking stuff from the club."

The trolling is not the first of it's kind for the former Leicester season ticket holder, who emailed the club earlier this weekend with a programme message request.
It read: "My message is as follows: 25 players don't all become s*** overnight at the same time. Rodgers Out."
Rodgers eased pressure on his job by guiding his team to a 4-0 win over Nottingham Forest after six consecutive league defeats, but it was followed by a 2-1 loss at Bournemouth.
The former Liverpool and Celtic boss said after the game: "I know there’s always pressure there but it’s not something I think about.
"With experience I can regulate that. It’s really about going back, going away and analysing the game.
"Getting the players in next week and having another week’s good work, we’ve got two home games now and the next game is very very important for us."
