JAY EMMANUEL-THOMAS is the latest player to leave Aberdeen in Jim Goodwin’s dramatic clear-out.

The former Livingston striker has joined club skipper Scott Brown and long-serving Andy Considine out of the Pittodrie exit as the Dons gaffer continues to reshape his squad.

Backroom boys Gordon Marshall and Adam Stokes have also moved on since Goodwin took over from Stephen Glass in February only days after their Scottish Cup exit at Motherwell.

The north-east outfit paid up 31-year-old Emmanuel-Thomas’ contract after he was deemed surplus to requirements. He was signed by former gaffer Glass last term, but has failed to spark at Pittodrie.

An Aberdeen statement said: “The club can this afternoon confirm it has terminated the contract of Jay Emmanuel-Thomas.

“The forward made 24 appearances for the Dons, making 12 starts and 12 substitute appearances and netted once.

“All at Aberdeen FC wish Jay the very best in his future career.”

The ex-St Mirren chief is certain to continue his shake up of the squad as he begins preparations for NEXT season.

It’s been a dreadful domestic campaign for the Dons term with the club failing to achieve a top six place in the Premiership.
