Gargan’s long throws gone from TFC: CBC

While there has been no official yea or nay from the club, CBC’s John Molinaro reported Monday that the club has informed defender Dan Gargan that he will be released in the coming days.

You had to feel this one was coming after Gargan wasn’t part of the squad that made the trip to Kansas City for Saturday’s loss.

Gargan was brought in last season under the Preki regime, after director of soccer Mo Johnston had pretty well abdicated his player management responsibilities to his new coach. Gargan was a dependable Division-2 player for the Puerto Rico Islanders before coming to TFC, and no one would be surprised if he fell to an NASL team before the end of this season.

On field, Gargan was most dangerous with the ball in his hands. In 2010, he became the team’s throw-in taker of choice, the MLS answer to Rory Delap. He’d fire long throws toward the opposition penalty area, and TFC managed to scramble home some goals off of them.

Gargan was also a unifying force in the dressing room, wearing a king’s mask (the king from Burger King, that is) when the media went into the room for post-game comments. He became a fan favourite, like so many everymen and journeymen who make their way onto Toronto sports teams.

Gargan was making US$70,000 this season.
