Former Dons defender Kevin McNaughton is considering retirement after the withdrawal of a contract offer from Caley Thistle.
McNaughton’s contract expired at the end of the season.
Previous manager Richie Foran was keen to keep the 34-year-old, however, new manager John Robertson last week said the deal for McNaughton was off due to finances.
The former Scotland defender was sidelined for much of last season after suffering an Achilles injury.
McNaughton said: “With the manager going, I’ve been in limbo not knowing what’s going on. I hadn’t heard anything for a couple of weeks. At the end of last week I was told they weren’t going to offer anything – I was quite surprised by that. It’s left me with a decision on whether I keep playing and find a club elsewhere.”
