‘Welcome back anytime’ – Plenty of West Brom fans react to former player’s latest announcement

on

Former West Brom defender Gareth McAuley has announced that he has made the decision to retire from football.

McAuley joined West Brom from Ipswich Town in the summer of 2011, and went onto spend seven years at the club, before leaving for Rangers last summer.

The defender struggled for game time in Glasgow during the previous campaign however, and would spend just a single year at Ibrox.

After leaving the Scottish giants at the end of last season, McAuley announced his retirement from the game on Monday morning, stating that it is time for him to take on ‘new challenges’.

During his time at West Brom, McAuley made 227 appearances for the Baggies, scoring 17 goals and winning the club’s Player of the Year Award for the 2012/13 campaign.

It is little surprise therefore that plenty of the Midlands side’s fans were keen to wish McAuley the best for the future in response to his announcement on Twitter.

Here, we take a look at what some of those fans had to say.
