LONDON (REUTERS) - Former England midfielder Kieron Dyer, whose career has been plagued by injury, was released by bottom of the table Queens Park Rangers on Tuesday.

"He wasn't in my plans and I think he's got something to offer someone so we wish him all the best," manager Harry Redknapp told the Premier League club's website after the club activated a release clause in Dyer's contract.

"If he can stay clear of injuries I'm sure there are clubs out there that will offer him the chance to play football."

Dyer, 34, made only four starts and four substitute appearances after joining the London side in July 2011. He scored his first goal for them in Saturday's 1-1 draw against West Bromwich Albion in the FA Cup third round.
