Northern Ireland's record international goal-scorer, David Healy, on Tuesday announced his retirement from professional football.
The 34-year-old striker, who scored 36 goals in 95 international appearances, has been without a club since leaving English fourth-tier side Bury at the end of last season.
"I don't think too many people will be surprised. I have been without a club for five months," he told BBC Sport.
"It's dawned on me that it's time for a new challenge. The career is over and it's time to move on."
