Holt parts company with Wycombe

Wycombe midfielder Gary Holt has left the club after his contract was terminated by mutual consent following a meeting with manager Peter Taylor.

Holt, 36, joined on a free transfer from Nottingham Forest in July 2007 and played 76 times for the Chairboys.

He told the club's website: "I had two great years at the club and to be a part of a promotion-winning side was a great way to finish."

The ex-Kilmarnock and Norwich player was originally signed by Paul Lambert.

Holt believes that comments made when Lambert resigned in 2008 contributed to his departure.

At the time he had told the Bucks Free Press: "At the moment I don't want to stay, I can't see myself being happy here and I wonder how we are going to get back the spirit we had."

My job is to now find another club and I'm looking forward to playing football next season

But reflecting on his comments he said: "It was well documented what happened after Paul Lambert left and I regret most of what I said.

"But I feel like I have proved my worth to the side over the past season and done my talking on the pitch.

"I've always had a good rapport with supporters at all the clubs I've been at in my career. It took a while for the fans at Wycombe to warm to me because of my comments but I hope they can appreciate the fact I always gave my all on the pitch.

"My job is to now find another club and I'm looking forward to playing football next season.

"I will probably stay in England but you never know in football. I'll take it as it comes and I do want to get into coaching at some stage."
