Glenn Murray: Former Brighton and Crystal Palace forward announces retirement

Former Brighton and Crystal Place forward Glenn Murray has announced his retirement from football.

The 37-year-old spent the second half of the season at Nottingham Forest on a short-term deal after leaving Brighton.

Linking up with former Seagulls boss Chris Hughton, the striker went on to score two goals in 16 appearances for Forest.

However, with his contract expiring at the end of June, Murray took to social media to announce he is hanging up his boots, posting: “To all the Clubs, Players & Fans that I’ve come across on this life changing journey….THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart. It’s been a pleasure, hanging them up 31/05/2021”
