LUFC Defender released for third time in 12 months
Former Leeds United defender Richard Naylor has been released for the third time in twelve months.
Naylor was released by Leeds at the end of last summer after two and a half years at Elland Road.
The 35 year old signed for fellow championship side Doncaster Rovers in the summer on short-term deal.
The defender made 15 appearances for Rovers before being released in January after coming to the end of his initial deal.
Naylor joined League Two side Rotherham United in January and he made just five appearances before suffering a knee injury in February that has ruled him out for the remainder of the season.
New Rotherham United boss Steve Evans met with Naylor to tell him he would not be renewing his short-term deal with the millers.
Naylor made 72 appearances for Leeds and he was the first signing made by manager Simon Grayson. Grayson quickly installed the Leeds born lad and supporter as the club captain.
He helped Leeds to promotion during the 2009/10 season and he also played in the famous 1-0 win at Old Trafford when Leeds defeated Manchester United.
Naylor made just 15 appearances for Leeds in their first season in the championship with the defender struggling throughout with injury.
