Ex-England goalkeeper Paul Robinson has retired from football after his former club Burnley announced the news on their official Twitter account, as reported by The Argus.

Robinson, who started his career at Leeds United, made 175 appearances for Tottenham during a four-year spell at White Hart Lane, before he moved on to Blackburn Rovers, playing over 200 games over seven years for the Ewood Park outfit.

"I intend to take a short time out to spend time with my family and explore the different options available to me".

But Robinson made just three appearances in the Clarets first season back in the Premier League.

"I have been very lucky to play for four very special football clubs and my country, I would like to say a huge thank you to the supporters and staff of every one as I was able to build a very special relationship with each".

The 37-year-old - who won 41 caps for the Three Lions - has called it quits after his contract at Burnley expired.

"In all my career I have never been a part of a more dedicated, hard working set of players and staff".

"He made a big contribution during his time at Burnley and we would all like to wish him well in his next venture, as well as making sure that he will always welcome back at Turf Moor".
