Oatway was suspended by the Championship club in May along with manager Gus Poyet and his assistant Mauricio Taricco.

Poyet has since been sacked, while Taricco has also left the club, and now former player Oatway has ended his 14-year association with Albion.

A Brighton statement read: "The club would like to sincerely thank Charlie for his hard work, commitment and dedication since he joined the club in 1999.

"Charlie joined the club as a player in 1999, eventually becoming club captain. During Charlie's successful playing career, he helped the club secure championships in 2001 and 2002 and a play-off victory in 2004.

"Following the end of his playing career, Charlie remained involved with the club working with its charitable arm Albion in the Community.

"In November 2009, Charlie became first-team coach, helping to guide the team to promotion as League One champions in 2011 and a highly creditable fourth-placed finish last season, the club's highest position for 30 years.

"We wish him all the very best for the future and are confident he will have a long and successful career ahead of him."

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
