Central Coast castaway Liam Reddy is keen to move on with Western Sydney, but not before having a little dig at his former club.
Reddy spent nearly two months in the A-League wilderness after being stood down by the Mariners over alleged disciplinary issues, told he was no longer wanted and eventually released from his contract last week.
Having now signed with the table-topping Wanderers until the end of the season, the veteran goalkeeper is more concerned with chasing silverware than reflecting on the tumultuous period.
However he made a slight reference to his exit from Tony Walmsley's last-placed outfit.
"Obviously with my situation it was a little bit messy there," Reddy told AAP.
"But I've moved on and the people that made those decisions will be judged, probably at the end of the year with where they finish and if it was a right or wrong decision.
"I'm in a different direction at a different club.
"They have come out and said what direction they want to go, and that doesn't involve me anymore so it doesn't really apply to me."
Reddy, who will train with the Wanderers until he's available for selection when the transfer window opens in January, said he's retained some close friends from the Mariners, where he spent two seasons.
His main focus now will be challenging first-choice keeper Andrew Redmayne for a starting spot.
"I'm looking forward now and over the moon," Reddy said.
"I've gone to a team that is top of the table and I feel that is going to bring the best out of me as a player.
"They're a very professional club, and they expect the best."
