Glenn Murray has announced his decision to retire from football at the age of 37.
The striker has had a distinguished career in the EFL, scoring plenty of goals for the likes of Brighton and Hove Albion and Crystal Palace.
Murray won promotion from every EFL division in his career, in League Two with Carlisle in 2005/06, in League One with Brighton in 2010/11, and in the Championship with Albion in 2016/17.
Murray’s best goalscoring form came with Brighton, scoring 111 goals in 285 games in two spells with the South Coast club in total.
Did each of these 20 players ever score a goal whilst on loan at Nottingham Forest?
This season, Murray endured a tough loan spell at Watford, which was cut short before he joined Nottingham Forest on a short-term deal in January.
After reuniting with Chris Hughton, Murray scored twice in 16 appearances for the Reds, and with his contract now set to expire, he has now announced his decision to retire from the game.
To all the Clubs, Players & Fans that I’ve come across on this life changing journey….THANK YOU from the bottom of my 🖤
It’s been a pleasure, hanging them up 31/05/2021 ✌🏼 pic.twitter.com/XTbC87wq3k

Murray may have only been at Forest for five months in what was a rather mediocre campaign, but they have still wished him well as he reflects on an impressive career.
Here’s what they had to say to him…
