Rangers

Former Rangers defender Clint Hill confirmed his retirement from playing on Friday after a senior career stretching back to 1997 – and Gers fans were quick to pay tribute to the veteran defender after his sole season at Ibrox.

The 39-year-old confirmed the decision to hang up his boots on his personal Twitter account after making 670 appearances in a career that included spells with Tranmere Rovers, Oldham Athletic, Stoke City, Crystal Palace, QPR, Nottingham Forest, Rangers and Carlise United.

Hill was a huge favourite with Gers fans after his spell at Ibrox – with Gers fans regularly travelling down south to see Hill in action with Carlise -and his retirement was met with an out-pouring of messages from fans.

Gers fans and players sent their well wishes to the veteran after he announced his decision – with one saying Hill was a “true Ranger.”

Here are some of their comments on Twitter:

Hill made 32 appearances for the Gers in his single season at Ibrox and scored six times – including a late Old Firm equaliser to deny Celtic a home win over Graeme Murty’s side in March 2017.

After leaving the Gers, Hill had a single season at Carlisle United, where he made 42 appearances as he helped them to a tenth-placed finish in League Two.
