League of Ireland stalwart Killian Brennan has announced his retirement from soccer after a 15-year career as a professional player.

Brennan, who spent what proved to be his swansong season at St Patrick's Athletic, confirmed his decision to hang up his boots on social media.

The 34-year-old began his professional career with the now defunct Dublin City in 2003 before lengthy spells with Derry City and Bohemians, where he won two league titles and the FAI Cup.

Arguably his most successful spell came with St Pat's in a two-year period between 2013 and 2015 during which he won every domestic trophy available and was named the both the FAI and PFAI player-of-the-year.

Confirming his decision to retire on Facebook, Brennan wrote: "Like to announce my retirement from the LOI.

"Had the pleasure of meeting some great people along the way. I'll very much miss the buzz of a Friday night."
