Flinders has a pop at Palace boss

Flinders has a pop at Palace boss

Scott Flinders has hit out at Crystal Palace manager Neil Warnock after revealing he only found out he was being released on the net, He told the Wimbledon Guardan:

'I know what people are like in the game now, whereas when I first came to London I thought everyone was my best mate.'

'He didn't really say anything to me, even when I left,' said the £1m signing from Barnsley three summers ago.

'He didn't sit me down and tell me he wasn't offering me a deal, the first I knew about it was on the internet which was disappointing.

'I have had three years where I wasn't playing and had to go out on loan but I'm at an age now where I am getting towards my prime and I need games.'

Flinders has only made 12 starts since signing for Palace in 2006, He continued: 'When you go for that amount of money there is a lot of interest in you and people said a lot of bad things about me but I have come out a stronger person,' he said.

'I was only 20 when I came and that is still young for a goalkeeper.

'I never felt like I got my feet under the table and I have got a lot to prove as I came for a lot of money.

'I was expecting a lot more from my time at Palace and many fans probably think I have been a failure, but I don't think so, I would put it down as an experience where I grew up a lot.

'I know what people are like in the game now, whereas when I first came to London I thought everyone was my best mate.

'I have come down a league to make sure I am playing but I am sure I will come back up and prove myself.'

'At least now I know I am going to be playing when the whistle goes at 3pm.'

In this case it is probably a case of depression rather than high as the sky.
