Johnson Released From Palace

6 January 2015

Striker Andrew Johnson has been released by Crystal Palace after his short-term contract expired.

The Eagles legend returned to the club on a free transfer in September and was named in the club's 25-man Premier League squad, but made just one appearance for the Eagles in his second spell, appearing as a substitute in the Capital One Cup defeat to Newcastle United later that month.

In his previous spell at the club between 2002 and 2006 the 33-year-old netted 84 goals in 160 outings to become a hero amongst the Palace faithful, and is now once again a free agent.

Johnson said he would like to place on record his thanks as he departed from SE25. "It was great to be back at Palace, if only for a short time, and I wish everyone at the club and those great supporters every success for the rest of the season."

The club would like to thank Andrew for his efforts during his return to the club and wish him all the best for the future.
