Former Canaries skipper Craig Fleming has left Rotherham. The 35-year-old moved to Millmoor in January after being told by Canaries boss Peter Grant that he was free to leave.

Former Canaries skipper Craig Fleming has left Rotherham.

The 35-year-old moved to Millmoor in January after being told by Canaries boss Peter Grant that he was free to leave.

And while he was first choice central defender for the rest of that campaign, he has been told by manager Mark Robins that he no longer figures in his plans and after talks, both parties have mutually agreed to part.

“We spoke in the close season and he wasn't really part of my plans,” said former Norwich striker Robins.

“But I will say that Craig is a good example to all and someone who works hard and he has not been a minute's problem.

“Rather than mess him about, it was best that he moved on and looked to get a game elsewhere rather than playing in the reserves.”

Fleming enjoyed a decade at Carrow Road, during which time he skippered the team and helped them regain top-flight status in 2004.

But his days were numbered when Grant, a one-time team-mate, moved in following the sacking of Nigel Worthington.
