Carr announces retirement


Former Newcastle and Tottenham defender Stephen Carr has announced his retirement from football.

The 32-year-old has decided to hang up his boots after failing to find himself a new club.

Carr has been without a club since leaving Newcastle at the end of last season and he has been linked with a number of sides.

However, the ex-Republic of Ireland international has been unable to find a club and he has now opted to quit the game.

Carr won 44 caps with the Republic and made over 300 first-team appearances for Tottenham and Newcastle.
