Sheffield Wednesday full-back Liam Palmer has revealed that captaining the Owls was the proudest moment of his career.
The versatile Scottish international came through the ranks at the Yorkshire club and has gone on to make over 250 appearances, including 27 in the current campaign.
So, Palmer has been through a lot over the past decade and he was asked by a fan in an Instagram Q&A what his proudest moment was. And, the 28-year-old explained how nothing will top leading the side out at Hillsborough as he has done in the past.
“Leading your team out, no better feeling. Proud moment for me and my family who helped support me over the years.”
Whilst Palmer hasn’t been the club captain, he is clearly an experienced and respected figure at the club and has played his part under several managers over the years.
Current boss Garry Monk has mainly used Palmer as a right-back this season, with the Owls currently languishing in the bottom half of the Championship and eight points away from the play-off places with nine games left.

Palmer is living the dream right now, playing for his local club and one he has been at since he was a kid.
He clearly recognises that and it’s no surprise that he names being the captain as a career highlight because it will have been a special day for him and his family.
The full-back remains an important part of the team now and he will hope to wear the armband again in the future.
