Aberdeen terminate Jay Emmanuel-Thomas’ contract

Jim Goodwin’s Aberdeen rebuild has continued, as the club announced it had “terminated the contract” of former Livingston striker Jay Emmanuel-Thomas.

The 31-year-old striker has scored a goal in 24 games for the Dons since joining from West Lothian last summer. Twelve of his appearances were off the bench.

The former Arsenal player last appeared on February 15, under interim boss Barry Robson.

Manager Goodwin claimed last month that Emmanuel-Thomas was “not fit enough to play the kind of football I want us to play”.

Emmanuel-Thomas follows Scott Brown and Mikey Devlin out of the club since Goodwin took over, while veteran defender Andrew Considine’s imminent departure was confirmed last week following a breakdown in contract talks.

A statement from Aberdeen added: “Everyone at Aberdeen FC wishes Jay all the best in his future career.”
