Fowler hints Perth Glory will not be his last club

Perth Glory won't be Liverpool legend Robbie Fowler's last club, if he can help it.

Fowler says he'd be happy to return to England and play in League One or Two.

He told the Sunday Mirror: "It seems like yesterday when I was starting off and the years have just flown by. It won't be long now and there is going to be a time when I have to retire and I am not looking forward to it.

"Would I play in League One or League Two? Of course I would. Without a shadow of a doubt. The money in the game now, people think they don't have to play in the lower divisions but that's not the point for me.

"I don't need the money but I love the game. I love being around people who are involved in the game, I love the day to day things and I love the match day.

"People don't want to drop down the divisions because they lose interest but I want to play for as long as I can. You are a long time retired. What are you going to do? There are only so many games of golf you can play."

Fowler's contract with the Glory ends in March and he is not yet sure whether he will remain in Australia or return to continue his career in England where his wife and children are living.

He has been linked with a move to MK Dons as a player-coach and although Fowler admires the club's manager, Karl Robinson, a friend and former academy coach at Liverpool, he says nothing has been decided.
