In a brief statement, the club have confirmed that Donnelly will be suspended ‘with immediate effect’.

Gillingham’s statement said: “Gillingham Football Club can confirm that striker Rory Donnelly has been suspended from his employment at the club with immediate effect.”

Donnelly is out of contract this summer and may well have now played his last game for the Gills.

He has this week been linked with a move to Scottish side Motherwell.

The striker has scored twice this season, including a deflected free-kick in their last match, which the Gills lost 3-2 against Fleetwood.

Since joining in the summer of 2015, Donnelly – who was signed by former boss Justin Edinburgh - has netted 12 league goals in 66 appearances.
