“Football is a game that has given me so much enjoyment and success, and as I make the decision to hang up my boots I can honestly say I gave it everything I had,” he wrote in a statement.
“I’ve made some fantastic friendships with people across the football world, from teammates, managers and the unsung heroes behind the scenes, and I just want to say a massive thank you.”
Everyone at Crystal Palace wishes Gary well for the next chapter of his career.
