Signaturschlüssel 435F423FxxxxxxD4 has been expired on 26.03.2019, but is still attached to published and still valid public WKD key.

It's my own key, actual one and old expired signature key ;)
It has been used while changing my own pgp key to a stronger one for signing it with my old valid key. Now it is not more needed, new key has been spreaded.

How to remove this old and expired signature from my key contruct?

Thanks and best regards.
