Shame - it should be Bates, Wilson, Kiernan and Senderos getting released 

Clint would have been good for another year 

all the best big man 

I'd keep Wilson. I still think there's a defender in there and maybe one season he'll make an appearance!

I imagine Clint is a decent earner and is obviously one of the few that Pedro can 100% get off the wage bill. 

Still he is a decent player and wouldn't of minded him staying, I assume PC is confident of getting better in.

Not surprised and the right call.

Wages need to be freed up and he's out of contract. No cost to get rid.

He's our best CB by a mile, even if we bring in 2 as starters he's the one you'd keep a back up.

I wish the big man all the best. He will be the 1st of many that will be leaving. Lets just hope the money is forthcoming from King to see us get decent players in..

Disappointed. He was a positive in an otherwise dismal season and has always come across very well. 

Thanks and good luck Clint.

Aye he is but he's 38 and needs to get regular appearances, if he consistently sits on the bench it'll do him no good in terms of fitness.

When we signed no one expected him to play as much, at 38 I'd imagine he'd expect not to be a regular.

Fine with this so long as we get better in. Served us well this year, not long term solution though obviously.

TRue and he probably would have rathered stay but he was one of the easiest to get off the wage bill and we will surely have another 3/4 coming in for this position so maybe it's for the best. Hopefully we do actually bring in better quality and don't rue this decision.

Probably the only of Warbuton's signings that looked a Rangers player. A defender who chipped in with a few goals as well as the epic equaliser against them.

Best of luck for the future Clint.

Seems like a really likeable guy who can hold his head high once this season finally ends.

He's been one of the very few successes at Ibrox this season so shame to see him go.

Looks like Pedro is working his way through the more straightforward decisions first.   Miller with new contract a couple of weeks ago.  Gilmour gone which is confirmation of all the indicators we'd been given by the Club anyway, 3 development players picked out for contract extensions and signed.   And now Hill, whose contract was coming to an end gets told early so that he can start to plan his next move.  Senderos is bound to be gone, there can be no doubt about that.   Hyndman and Toral will know they are returning to their parent clubs.     So.....the list is being worked through.   

The pirhana Press will be swimming around looking for the juicy bits to come will be the leaks or news or rumours and so on relating to those who are still under contract but who will not be part of the 'core' for next season and put on the transfer list.

He's been a real asset in an otherwise poor season for us. Think he's one of the few who has understood what we are all about. Plus he scored an important goal at the piggery. Thank you Clint. All the best

Mental decision.

All the best, Clint. By far the biggest positive from this season.

It's hardly a mental decision, he's 38. If we can get him out and Alves in, that's good business.

Sad to see Hill go but I think it looks like we're bringing in at least two CB's this summer. All the best when you go Clint

Fair.

 

Hope he goes back to QPR and finishes his career there.

 

Thanks for your effort Clint, one of the good guys.

As long as we have better coming in - and i would assume thats the case if we are letting him go - then its a pragmatic move

Absolutely.

Much as i like Hill, the Gaffer must be confident he can bring in better.

Easy to release guys like Clint when their contract expires....the difficulty is how we can move on some of the others on contracts who have underperformed

He was the best of a bad bunch in terms of defending ability but that's not exactly a glowing review. He's done a decent job but we need to improve as we all know. Best of luck to him.

He'll probably end up at Forest.

Would have done for cover for another season imo. All the best big Clint.

Suspect the last 3 in our list will be gone in a few months anyway.
