Russell Leaves Pompey

Last updated : 28 January 2013 By Jim Bonner

Darel Russell has had his contract terminated early by mutual consent.

The 32-year-old was due to leave Portsmouth after Tuesday's match with Notts County anyway because he was not going to sign a new contract due to "broken promises" by the club.

Russell now wants to join a club where he will "win trophies" after his stint at Fratton Park. That is some wishful thinking there given that Russell may well have been the worst player Pompey have had all season. And that is saying a lot!

A sluggish player that has no passing skill, no ability to score goals and little ability to win the ball back is of no use to anyone and that is how Russell can be described in a nutshell.

Goodbye Darel, I hear Barcelona have an offer for you.
