Support » Plugin: Redirection » Google indexed, permanent removal

    I have a few pages in WP that do not make sense and I filed a bug.
    A category equals negativ one

    So I did a quick fix
    robots.txt
    Disallow: /de/page/27/?cat=-1

    Now in google search console I get: Indexed, though blocked by robots.txt

    Then I found the following article:
    https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/9689846?hl=en
    where it states: do not use robots.txt
    use
    Remove or update the content on your site (images, pages, directories) and make sure that your web server returns either a 404 (Not Found) or 410 (Gone)

    Is this possible with your redirection plugin and what would be the setup?

    thanks
