Liam Feeney leaves Tranmere by mutual consent

Tranmere Rovers has confirmed that Liam Feeney has left the Club by mutual consent.

The 35-year-old made 58 appearances for Rovers and helped the Club reach the Papa John’s Trophy final and League Two playoffs during the last campaign. 

A spokesperson for the club said, “We’d like to thank Liam for his efforts whilst at Prenton Park and wish him the best of luck in the future.”


Later in the day in a statement, Scunthorpe United said that it was “delighted to have completed the signing of Tranmere Rovers midfielder Liam Feeney on a permanent basis. The transfer is subject to EFL and FA ratification.”

Early career
Feeney joined League One side Southend United on loan until 3 January 2009 in November 2008. He made his debut after coming on as an 80th-minute substitute in a 3–0 defeat to Leicester City on 6 December. He signed for AFC Bournemouth on 2 February for an undisclosed fee.

Feeney scored his first goal for Bournemouth during a 4–0 win over Rochdale.

Feeney made his Millwall debut on 11 September 2011 against Birmingham City. After three years with the club, he was released on 10 May 2014.

On 27 September 2013 Feeney joined Millwall’s divisional rivals Bolton Wanderers on a three-month loan deal.

He made his debut, as a substitute for Lee Chung-Yong, the following day in a 1–1 draw against Yeovil Town at the Reebok Stadium.

Millwall exercised their right to activate a 28-day recall clause due to injuries in their squad, meaning an earlier-than-expected return to The Den. He later joined Blackburn Rovers on loan in March.

Bolton Wanderers
On 19 May 2014, Bolton Wanderers announced that Feeney would rejoin the club on a permanent deal once his Millwall contract had expired. He made his second debut on the opening day of the new season in a 3–0 loss to Watford and scored his first goals for Bolton on 4 November, scoring twice in a 3–0 home win against Cardiff City. At the end of the 2015–16 season, the club confirmed that he would be leaving when his contract expired at the end of June.

Ipswich Town (loan)
On 17 March 2016, Feeney signed for Ipswich Town on loan. He made his Blues’ debut against Rotherham United, after coming on as a second-half substitute.

Blackburn Rovers
On 25 June 2016, Feeney re-signed for Blackburn Rovers; whom he was previously on loan to, on a two-year deal, with an option of a third year.

On 31 August 2017, Feeney joined Championship side Cardiff City on loan until 1 January 2018. He made his debut at Fulham on 9 September, coming on to set up Danny Ward for the equaliser in a 1–1 draw.

He was released by Blackburn at the end of the 2017–18 season.

On 23 August 2018, Feeney signed for Blackpool on an initial two-year contract. He was given a starting debut in their 2–0 victory over Bristol Rovers at Bloomfield Road.

Feeney scored his first goal for Blackpool in his 66th game for the club. It came in a 3–1 victory over Fleetwood Town at Bloomfield Road on 7 December 2019. It was also his first goal since 7 January 2017, for Blackburn.
