Legendary defender and former skipper Paul Robinson has now brought an official end to his Millwall career as he has mutually terminated his contract with us.

He leaves having made 362 appearances for us, scoring 23 goals since signing his first professional deal at the club back in August 2001.

He made his debut a year later against Preston North End and scored his first goal for us in the three two victory over Cambridge United in the FA Cup back in January 2003.

He missed out on our FA Cup Final appearance in 2004 with injury, but he quickly became a mainstay in the side and a fan favourite.

In the League One Play Off semi final second leg against Hudderfield, he grabbed one of the goals putting us through to the final, and then he grabbed the winner in our second consecutive Wembley Final against Swindon to take us to the Championship.

The club honoured his service with a testimonial back in August 2013 when we hosted La Liga’s Rayo Vallecano and his final appearance for the club came as a substitute as we beat Bournemouth on the day day of the 2013-14 season to secure survival.

As the new season began he fell out of favour with manager Ian Holloday, and has spent much of the season onloan with League Two Portsmouth, and in order for the 32 year old to secure his future more easily with them, or another club, his contract has been cancelled with mutual affect and he becomes a free agent.

Speaking to the official site as he made his goodbyes to the club and the fans, he said.

‘I have loved every single minute of playing for Millwall and I want to thank all the fans for their support over the years. They have helped to give me the platform to achieve my dreams by wearing that Lion on my chest. Millwall’s will be the first result I look out for every weekend and I know that the club can continue to go from strength to strength. It is unfortunate that my time at The Den has come to an end but I wish the manager, his coaching team, the board, the players and the fans the vert best of luck for the future.’
