Murphy has now decided to focus his efforts on a media career.
He told talkSPORT: āThere have been some press reports about whether Iām still playing or available but I decided a little while ago I would retire, I just didnāt make it official.
āSo now Iām officially retiring because Iām sick of having conversations about it and almost stringing people along. I decided three or four weeks ago I was done, and this is the best place to do it.
āThis is me, 20 years, Iām done. Iāve had a wonderful career and can look back on it with fondness.ā
