Neill was released today after weeks of speculation over his future with the Gulf club, who also confirmed the sacked their Brazilian coach Caio Junior.

Neill's availability will no doubt interest several A-League clubs, although the 34-year-old's wage demands could prove a stumbling block following his lucrative spell in the UAE Pro League.

The former Blackburn and West Ham defender has already been linked with Saudi Arabian club Al Nassr so his services may still come at a premium.

Neill is on international duty with Australia, and is in line to lead the side out against Denmark this evening.
