Southend United Football Club can confirm Rob Kiernan’s contract has been terminated by mutual consent.
Kiernan joined Blues in 2017 but suffered what turned out to be a long-term knee injury shortly into what was his second spell at the club, having previously been on loan in 2013.
The injury ruled the defender out for 19 months, but he returned to first team action in style, getting on the scoresheet after 20 minutes against Blackpool in March last year.
This season Kiernan featured 23 times, scoring one goal in the 2-2 draw with MK Dons on Boxing Day.
We wish Rob all the best for the future.
