Former Blackburn Rovers, Wigan Athletic and Fleetwood Town man Charlie Mulgrew has announced his retirement, as per Stv News.
The Scotsman has decided to call time on his playing career at the age of 37.
Mulgrew, who made 44 caps for the Scotland national team, cut ties with Dundee United at the end of last season.
He has now made the decision to hang up his boots after spending the past couple of months weighing up his options as a free agent.
Former Blackburn and Wigan man
Mulgrew played for Blackburn from 2016 to 2021 and went on to make 109 appearances during his time at Ewood Park, chipping in with 27 goals.
The versatile defender helped the Lancashire side gain promotion from League One in his second campaign at the club under their former boss Tony Mowbray by firing 14 goals and then adapted well to the step up to the Championship.
Mulgrew slipped out of favour during his final couple of years at Rovers and was first loaned out to Wigan in 2019. He then went on to play 13 times during his stint at the DW Stadium.
Fleetwood Town then came calling on a temporary basis 12 months later and he made 23 outings for the Cod Army in the third tier, finding the net once.
The Glasgow-born man, who also spent time at Celtic, Wolves, Southend United and Aberdeen, departed Blackburn when his contract expired a couple of years ago.
Dundee United subsequently snapped him up for nothing and he moved back up to Scotland after five years below the border in England. He couldn’t prevent the Terrors from relegation to the Scottish Championship though and left earlier this summer as he now announces his retirement.
