CRAIG DARGO has left Partick Thistle under freedom of contract and with the Jags unable to afford to offer the striker a new deal.
Dargo signed a two month contract at Firhill in November and impressed boss Jackie McNamara in four outings.
But the Thistle gaffer admitted any hopes of holding onto the former St Mirren and Kilmarnock player hinged on reaching the fifth round of the Scottish Cup.
Saturday's fourth round defeat to Queen of the South put paid to that plan and Dargo is now on the hunt for a new club with Glentoran and Stirling Albion said to be interested.
The 34-year-old striker said: "I really enjoyed my time at Partick Thistle. It helped me get back playing and and to keep my fitness up.
"I am fit and raring to go and I just want to get myself sorted and back playing as quickly as pssible."
