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.'
