Former Man City legend Joe Hart to RETIRE at end of the season

Celtic goalkeeper and former Manchester City legend Joe Hart has announced he will retire at the end of the season.

The 36 year-old former England goalkeeper announced he will retire after informing Celtic.

Hart was the joint 2nd most capped goalkeeper in England history with David Seaman as he was part of four major successive England tournaments spanning from 2010-2016.

He was part of the famous 2012 Man City Premier League win where he made some vital saves throughout the season.

The shot stopper from Shrewsbury made 690 club appearances for numerous clubs including Blackpool, Birmingham, Torino, Burnley, Tottenham, Celtic and of course Manchester City where he won two Premier League titles, a Community Shield, an FA Cup and two League Cups.

Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers had this to say about the Celtic captain:

“For all he has done in football, Joe deserves huge praise and congratulations, he has been such a brilliant asset to Celtic of course and the wider game at the highest levels, domestically and internationally,” Rodgers told the Celtic website.

“But more than that, he is a tremendous man, just brilliant to work with, someone who I know has been a great team-mate to so many throughout his career and a player who never gives anything but his absolute best. Each and every day his work ethic is an example to all in football.

“I also know he will continue to work right through this season with the same intensity, commitment and drive which he has always been known for.”

At Football Post, we want to wish Joe Hart all the best in his upcoming retirement and we are grateful for the memories he’s provided us over the years.
