PARTICK THISTLE midfielder Gary Harkins has left the club after the two parties agreed to mutually terminate the midfielder's contract.

The 35-year-old departs Firhill after falling down the pecking order at Thistle, following the January signings of fellow midfielders Darian MacKinnon and Jamie Barjonas.

Harkins was in his second spell at the club, having re-joined in January 2019 after spending two years at Thistle between 2007 and 2009.

A statement on the club's website read: "Gary leaves with the sincere thanks of everyone at Partick Thistle and with our best wishes for the future."
