Loan striker Jay Emmanuel-Thomas has returned to Championship side QPR.

The Gills leading scorer was left out of the side on Tuesday night and will play no more part this season.

Emmaneul-Thomas has scored 10 goals in total this season, seven of them in the league.

It was the decision of Gills head coach Ady Pennock to let him leave.

The striker made an explosive start to his Gills career, scoring in the league win over Southend on the opening day and then adding two more as they beat the same team in the League Cup.

A brace against Shrewsbury helped the Gills come back from a two-goal deficit to win 3-2 at the end of August.

Are you glad Gills have sent JET back?


Despite his goals, fans and management were often left frustrated by his laid-back style.

His last goal was on November 26, in a 3-0 win over Rochdale, and he then went 11 without scoring.

He started in Pennock’s first game in charge but was relegated to the bench before being called upon to start at the weekend. He was withdrawn at the break, however.
