On early Monday morning, it was confirmed that clear West Bromwich Albion fan favourite, Gareth McAuley, had now hung up his boots and announced his retirement from the game.

The 39-year-old Northern Ireland international has followed quickly in the footsteps of another fan favourite, and former centre-half partner, Jonas Olsson, who announced his own retirement just over a week ago.

McAuley had a very good career, making well over 500 appearances in the game, and over 200 of those came at The Hawthorns following his arrival back in the summer of 2011, and he didn’t depart that long ago – heading for Rangers in the 2018/19 summer window.

His part in helping us to stay in the Premier League for all those years, with an odd foray further up the table, will never be forgotten and fans were quick to pay tribute to his career, and his time with us, for the part he played. He’ll certainly be welcomed back!
