Ex-Motherwell and Stirling Albion forward Smith joined the club last summer while former Rangers winger Wylde was signed on a short-term deal in January.

Duffy, a member of the Falkirk side which reached the 2015 Scottish Cup Final, joined Clyde in 2017 while Lyon, who came through the ranks at Rangers and recently returned to the Ibrox club's Youth Academy in a coaching role, spent two seasons at Broadwood.

Fitzpatrick was the unfortunate player whose selection for two league games for which he was ineligible cost the club a controversial points deduction.

A Clyde statement thanked the five men for their efforts during their time with The Bully Wee and wishes them all well for the future.
