Steve Carr announces retirement from football
Former Ireland international Stephen Carr has announced his retirement from football.
The 32-year-old has been without a club since his contract ran out with Newcastle United at the end of last season.
Carr began his career at Tottenham Hotspur in 1993 where he established himself as one of the best right backs in the Premier League.
The Dubliner moved to Newcastle United in 2004, although he only played 78 times over four years due to a persistent knee injury.
Injury also prevented Carr from travelling to the 2002 World Cup in Korea and Japan with Mick McCarthy's squad.
Carr won 44 caps for the Republic of Ireland and also represented his country at Schoolboy, Youth, Under-18 and Under-21 level.
