Midfielder Neil Gallagher has retired from inter-county football, Donegal announced this evening.

The county's twitter account revealed that Donegal manager Rory Gallagher confirmed today that Gallagher has decided to call time on his career due to injury.

The midfielder was a key member of Jim McGuinness' All-Ireland-winning side in 2012, picking up an All Star for his performances that season. He was again honoured in 2014 after his side once again made an All-Ireland final.

Gallagher made his senior debut in 2004, and finishes his career with one All-Ireland medal, three Ulster titles and one National League title.
