Andy Reid won 23 caps for Republic of Ireland

Nottingham Forest midfielder Andy Reid has announced his retirement at the age of 34 after a succession of injuries.

The former Republic of Ireland international has not played a first-team game since injuring his groin against Derby County in October 2014.

Reid, who came through the Reds’ youth system, moved to Spurs in 2006 for £4m and also had spells with Charlton, Sunderland and Blackpool.

He returned in 2011 and went on to score 42 goals in 290 appearances.

Reid seemed close to a first-team return on a number of occasions, but was unable to regain his fitness despite a number of operations.

He joined the club’s coaching staff last season when Paul Williams took over as manager from Dougie Freedman.
