Former Shamrock Rovers man Gavin Brennan says he stands over his record at the club and claims he was "treated like a dog" before his exit.

Rovers confirmed yesterday that the Drogheda native had left the club "by mutual agreement" after a falling-out which saw Brennan, who had been out of the squad, criticised for comments he made on twitter. But the player, who now takes a break from the game and plans to resume for the 2017 season, says he has no regrets.

"I always wore my heart on my sleeve, wherever I played, but for the last few weeks I was left in the stands and I was never given a reason," Brennan told The Herald.

"People who know me and who watched me know what I am like, but they were playing 17-year-olds ahead of me.

I think they took the 'whatever' out of me and I was treated like a dog, they didn't come and talk to me about why I wasn't playing.

"I feel I can hold my head high. I read comments that I had a bad attitude but I've always had a good attitude, I was always the first one on the training pitch. I understand the manager is bringing younger lads through but I felt I should have been playing."
