Rory Delap announces his retirement
BURTON have confirmed former Derby, Southampton and Stoke midfielder Rory Delap has retired from professional football.
The 37-year-old, renowned for his long throw-ins, moved to the Pirelli Stadium in July but a torn hamstring limited him to only seven appearances.
Burton manager Gary Rowett told www.burtonalbionfc.co.uk: "Rory has been a constant professional since he joined the club in the summer.
"His attitude and work ethic have been a credit to himself and the invaluable knowledge and experience that he has passed onto the rest of the players here at Burton Albion has been priceless."
