STEPHEN Warnock has announced that he will retire at the end of the season.
The defender, who is currently on-loan at Bradford City, announced the news on his official Instagram page.
Warnock made more than 200 Premier League appearances across spells at Liverpool, Aston Villa and Blackburn Rovers.
Warnock, whose Burton Albion contract was due to expire this summer, played 15 times for the Brewers and scored once.
He said: “It’s every players hardest moment in football...to hang up their boots! It’s not been an easy decision but this season will be my last as a professional.
“I’d like to thank the staff at Liverpool FC, especially Steve Heighway, Dave Shannon and Hughie McCauley for their belief in me especially after my injuries.
“Two of my dreams came true, to pull on the famous red jersey of Liverpool and to also wear the white of England. I’m lucky to have represented & captained some of the biggest clubs in England and this I am very proud of. Thank you to all the fans of the clubs I represented.
“I still feel I have a lot to offer the game and give back so I’m excited for what lies ahead. Finally...to my family. I thank you for all your support through the highs and lows we have shared together.”
