FORMER hot prospect Charlie Telfer today left Dundee United after the Taysiders failed to win promotion back to the Premiership.
The player was the subject of a bitter feud between United and Rangers back in 2014 when the Tannadice side swooped to sign the player, taking him away from the Ibrox club who were playing in the lower divisions of the Scottish game.
United, who had claimed that the player would benefit from more game -time with them, were eventually forced to cough up £204,000 in compensation to Rangers after the dispute was decided at a tribunal.
As things turned out the 21 year old made only 71 appearances for the Tannadice outfit and spent last season on loan at Livingston.
Now with money tight going into a second successive season in the Championship the player has been released.
“I am disappointed that my time at United has come to an end,” he said.
“I have enjoyed being part of this fantastic club and have made many friends on and off the park.
“I wish I could have helped United back into the Premiership, and while I will look back on that with disappointment, I will always remember my time at Tannadice with great fondness and wish the club all the best moving forward.”
