Former Hibs defender hangs up his boots

DAVID MURPHY, the former Hibs defender who won the League Cup with the club, yesterday announced his retirement through injury at the age of just 30.

The full-back was an Easter Road regular for three-and-a-half seasons and played nearly 150 matches, but could not recover fully from a recent knee cartilage issue. "My rehabilitation went as well as it could have done and I managed to return," he said. "However, I wasn't able to sustain my previous form and I have no option but to retire."
