Wouldn't mind him being given a 1 year contract if it's on a reasonable salary for a backup player 

Given the outgoings yesterday, I'm thinking this has been offered and he's gone away to consider it.

I agree that he might prove useful off the bench occasionally, but you shouldn't earn £1m a year for a couple of 10 minute cameos and being a good bloke. People do though!

I think this silence is him considering a 25-50% pay cut and one year deal.

I think he'll take it because no one else is going to give him much more, and as has been said, he's settled.

I think the clubs have to announce the release of players but not sure if official. If so best of luck to him to go with rest of players

Didn't rate him to start off with but thought he played some really good games with Smith as manager.

Thanks for always giving 100% Glenn and good luck in the future.

Turned out alright in the end, when I saw him playing for Ireland years ago I thought he looked like one of the least talented players I'd ever seen so wasn't that happy he joined, but thanks for all the effort.  I'm a bit surprised that the club have been this ruthless, I thought a couple would stay for continuity.

Thought he might get another year deal, he's probably the only one who we've released who I wouldn't have minded staying, hopefully he can help another club in the championship get promoted again this coming season, I wish him all the best!

I would have kept him for another season. Turned out alright in the end. And gave us good service ...all the best for the future.

Always Thought he was a liability, but he shone during our incredible run in towards the end of the season . Thanks for the effort and the penalty miss

I'm very happy about this, now of course Glenn did fantastic last season and proved to be an important player in our success, but ultimately he does not have the legs and IMO ability (at this stage of his career) for the Premier League, so I'm happy to see sentiment isn't getting in the way of decision making and we're doing what's best for next season. 

I agree with this. Best for all involved that he leaves us after promotion with his head held high rather than trying to make it happen in the PL at this stage of his career.

All the best, Glenn.

Wow, would have loved to keep him around for one more season. At this rate, Jack is going to be our most senior player lol

Look through the squad. I think he already is.

Maybe he  was offered a deal but he could get better elsewhere? 

Good Luck to him. He always gave his all for us which is all you can ask.

I was all aboard the giving him a 1 yr deal etc. Then I remembered he's older than Jedinak. Been undervalued at times imo but great to see him put some good showings together and go out on a high. Good luck for the future and all that.

Delighted to see him gone, the penalty miss that led to the cabbage was the highlight of his villa career.
