FORMER IRELAND INTERNATIONAL Paddy Kenny has cancelled his short-term contract at Bury — the club where he originally began his professional career.

The 37-year-old made his return to the League One side as cover at goalkeeper, but voluntarily agreed to cancel the deal after just 13 days, having picked up a calf injury.

“He doesn’t feel like he is going to earn his money now he is injured,” manager David Flitcroft told the official Bury website.

“Quite incredibly he has decided he wants to cancel the contract.

“He had guaranteed money there but he has said he can’t take money off the football club, which is quite a unique circumstance.”

Kenny previously played for Sheffield United, QPR and Leeds among other clubs, and also earned seven Ireland caps between 2004 and 2006.
