German equivalent to "Good Riddance"

Hi all! I was wondering if there's a phrase in German that can equate to the English phrase "good riddance." If you aren't sure what this means, it's a rather sarcastic way of saying goodbye to someone that you are glad to see going away. For example, if a sports team has a very bad player that ends up being taken off the team, a fan of the team would say "good riddance!"

Thank you for any translations you may have!

Hi Susan! - I must think of "Und tschüss!" or "Auf Nimmerwiedersehen!" (maybe also "Gut, dass wir ihn/sie los sind!"). All three expressions are unkind ways of saying goodbye. In my opinion, "Und tschüss!" equates best with "good riddance", it's not too rude, unkind though, and conveys a slightly sarcastic/provocative tone. ;)
