Peter Crouch, who played for Liverpool, Tottenham and England during his long career has announced his retirement at the age of 38.

After coming through the ranks at White Hart Lane Crouch cut his teeth at QPR and made his Premier League debut for Aston Villa.

A solitary season at Southampton was enough to win him a move to Liverpool and after three years at Anfield he moved to Portsmouth.
