The club has still struggled for form since the former Socceroo's exit and many were surprised to see Ross still on the bench after his brother had quit.

Today though the club confirmed Ross's departure "by mutual agreement" after four years as assistant coach.

“I want to thank the owners, management, supporters, football department and the players for their support over the past few years," Aloisi said in a statement issued by the club.

"It has been an honour and privilege to work for this great club in Brisbane Roar and I take great pride in making the finals each season, qualifying for the AFC Champions League and going within a point of winning the Premiers’ Plate.

“I wish everyone associated with the Brisbane Roar the best for the remainder of the season and beyond.”

The club statement added: "Brisbane Roar would like to thank Ross for his dedication and service to Brisbane Roar FC. The club wishes him and his family all the very best for the future.

"The club will not be making any further comment at this time."
