Liverpool honour club legend after fan favourite announces retirement

Daniel Agger's Liverpool career ended quite abruptly under Brendan Rodgers but that didn't stop the Reds from praising the Dane after the defender announced his retirement this afternoon.
Agger, who made 175 appearances for Liverpool during an eight-year spell at Anfield, returned to childhood club Brondby after his contract expired in 2014.
The centre back made 75 international appearances for Denmark in a career that saw him captain his county. Agger was an Anfield regular for most of his time at the club but fell out of favour with Rodgers during Liverpool's brush with Premier League glory in 2014.
However, there doesn't appear to be any ill-will between the 31-year-old and his former team, with Liverpool sending a number of commemorative tweets this afternoon to mark Agger's retirement.
