Deuchar is now with Hamilton Academical and told The Scotsman: "The occasion where I found myself out of the team happened to be the last six games of the season.
"We were doing well as a team and the strikers who got their chance did well, so I can't have too many complaints. As a squad we did really well and got to the Western conference final and were just one game away from winning the whole thing. It was successful season.
"You are signed to the league (Major League Soccer] rather than the club and I had another year left on my contract. But I was keen to come back, and they were keen to free up some space on their salary caps. There were no hard feelings."
