The former World Cup winner spent a miserable five months at United, before being moved onto Glasgow Rangers.

A persistant knee problem has now forced him to hang up his boots.

"It is high time that I bring my career to an end. It's been really difficult to play for some time now," he said.

"The knee cartilage has really taken a battering and it's now been four months since I last kicked a football."
