Midfielder took the social media on Monday after Rs departure was confirmed last week
Former Queens Park Rangers midfielder Karl Henry took to Twitter Monday to post a heartfelt thank you to the west Londoners following his release last week.
Henry is one of 10 players whose deals will not be renewed when they expire this summer, along with youngsters Jeremy Arthur, Brandon Barzey, Darnell Goather-Braithwaite, Ruudi Clarke, Gianni Crichlow, Jake Eales, Anthony Folkes, Michael Klass and Rhys Springer-Downes.
The 34-year-old joined from Wolverhampton Wanderers in July 2013 and helped the Rs win promotion to the Premier League at the end of that season.
However, with Henry’s four-year stay at Loftus Road to end this summer, the midfielder took to social media to thank all involved.

In addition to Henry and the other players leaving the club in the summers, QPR confirmed that Ravel Morrison and Kazenga LuaLua will return to their parent clubs following the completion of their loans.
Morrison joined Rs for a second spell in January from Lazio and went on to make five appearances.
Lualua also joined in January from Championship rivals Brighton & Hove Albion, going on to make 11 appearances, scoring just the one goal against Preston North End in February.
