Gretna have continued their clear-out with James Grady joining Hamilton, Allan Jenkins signing for Morton and Martin Canning being released.

The 36-year-old Grady, had arrived from Dundee United in 2005, while fellow forward Jenkins, 10 years his junior, had signed from Stranraer in 2006.

Canning, also 26, arrived in 2006 but made just one substitute appearance this season after ankle surgery.

He was Gretna's record signing when he joined from Ross County for 60,000.

Managing director Brooks Mileson told his club website: "Martin Canning is a fantastic individual and we understood his concerns that, due to his long absence through injury, he would not be a regular first-team player.

"Due to the outstanding contribution he has made to the club, we have agreed to terminate his contract with immediate effect in order that he may pursue regular football elsewhere."

Grady, whose goal secured Gretna's place in the Scottish Premier League last season, has been part of the club throughout its climb through the Scottish leagues, scoring 26 goals in 75 appearances.

Also dropping to Division One, Jenkins, who has signed a three-year contract with Morton, joins up with former Gretna team-mate Ryan McGuffie at Cappielow.

Despite spending most of the campaign as a substitute, Jenkins has weighed in with three goals for the club this season, including the winner in their first SPL win over Dundee United in September.

Goalkeeper Tony Caig had earlier in the day left Gretna to join US Major League Soccer Champions Houston Dynamo.

Meanwhile, Hamilton have released forward David Winters and had a cash offer rejected by Dundee for striker Derek Lyle, who has signed a pre-contract agreement with Accies.
