Birmingham player-coach Robinson confirms retirement plans

Former West Brom and Watford fullback Paul Robinson has announced he's retiring at the end of the season.

The 39-year-old, who spent six seasons at The Hawthorns, is currently a player-coach at Birmingham City.

He's planning to hang up his boots once this campaign is finished, but is hoping to continue coaching.

"I have loved wearing every shirt with pride, I have played my heart out every time and I've achieved from a young age my dream," he tweeted.

"At the end of the season it will be goodbye to playing but the start of a new exciting chapter."
