Former Owl Michael Gray Retires

Former Owl Michael Gray Retires

Former Wednesday and England midfielder Michael Gray has retired from football following his departure from Hillsborough.

The 35-year-old has called time on his well-respected football career after failing to secure a new contract under Owls boss Alan Irvine at S6.

It brings the curtain down on a career which started at Sunderland and included three international caps.

He also enjoyed spells at Scottish giants Celtic as well as Blackburn Rovers, Leeds United and Wolves before arriving at Wednesday initially on loan in 2009.

Owls boss of the time Brian Laws quickly turned that loan stint into a full deal at the start of last season and Gray put in some top-drawer performances in the blue and white stripes before injury forced him to the sidelines.

He made 40 league starts for the Owls in total and provided an experienced and well-respected head in the dressing room throughout his time at the club.

The Sunderland-born defender/midfielder will be best known for his stint with the Black Cats, which included 341 league starts.

Vital Sheffield Wednesday thanks Michael for his time at the club and wishes him all the best for the future.
