The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

BOLTON de­fender Marc Tier­ney has an­nounced his re­tire­ment at the age of just 29 due to an an­kle in­jury.

The for­mer Nor­wich full­back has un­der­gone four op­er­a­tions since break­ing a bone and suf­fer­ing lig­a­ment dam­age dur­ing a game against Yeovil in 2013.

“It’s ob­vi­ously very dis­ap­point­ing, but I’ve got some great mem­o­ries from my time as a player,” said Tier­ney.

“The club have been kind enough to al­low me to still come in for physio, so my treat­ment is still on­go­ing.

“I want to get to the point where it doesn’t af­fect me in my nor­mal life – a recre­ational an­kle if you will.”
