St MIrren goalkeeper rejects new contract offer.

St Mirren have lost Vaclav Hladky after the goalkeeper rejected a new contract offer.

The 29-year-old played a major role in keeping Saints in the Scottish Premiership during his 18 months in Paisley, especially when saving three penalties in a play-off final shoot-out against Dundee United a year ago.

Oan Djorkaeff is also leaving the club with immediate effect while first-team players Stephen McGinn, Danny Mullen, Gary MacKenzie, Ross Wallace, Tony Andreu and Cody Cooke have also played their last games but will be retained under the UK Government's furlough scheme before leaving.

Academy players Conor McBrearty, Scott Glover, David Wilson, Matthew Grant, Kyle Girvan and Dominic Lavelle have also signed short-term deals so they can be paid 80 per cent of their wages under the scheme.

A club statement read: "An offer was made to Vaclav  but he has decided he wishes to pursue options elsewhere and leaves with immediate effect. We'd like to thank Vaclav for all his efforts in the Black and White."

Midfielder Ryan Flynn, who suffered a serious knee injury in February, has been offered a contract extension and the club say they are "hopeful this can be resolved very soon".

Akin Famewo, Calum Waters, Lee Hodson, Alex Jakubiak and Seifedin Chabbi have also left following the end of their loan spells.

St Mirren manager Jim Goodwin said: "It has been really difficult to have to say goodbye to these players, especially in the current circumstances.

"However, the opportunity to support the players through the close season is one the club felt was important. It goes without saying that everyone at the club wishes all of them the very best for the future."
