Kiernan departs Southend United

SOUTHEND UNITED have confirmed that defender, Rob Kiernan, has left the club after his contract was ended by mutual consent.

Kiernan’s time at Roots Hall was blighted by a serious knee injury sustained shortly after his move south from Scottish outfit, Rangers. He has featured 23 times for the troubled Blues this season, netting once. 

The player – who has also featured for the likes of Watford, Wigan Athletic, Birmingham City as well as representing the Republic of Ireland at under 21 and several youth levels – is now expected to link up with California-based Orange County FC after agreeing on terms with the club.
