Murray Tribute

Murray Tribute

Matt Murray was given a nice send off by the Molineux crowd on Sunday.

The 29-year-old was forced into retirement last month after continuing to struggle to recover from a ruptured patella tendon in his right knee.

In yet another gutsy performance, the former shot stopper stepped onto the Molineux pitch at half time on Sunday.

"It was a massive decision for me to make, but the support I have received since the day I announced it has been superb and I thank the board, management, players and supporters.' Murray told the the Molineux crowd.

He continued: "Wolves has been a massive part of my life for 20 years and I`m sure it will continue to be.

"Nothing will replace the buzz of playing in front of a full Molineux and I have many great memories - the play-off final at Cardiff, beating Newcastle in the FA Cup, and, of course, beating the Baggies 1-0.

"It`s been an honour to play for you for me and my family."

He was then applauded by everyone in attendance, including the Aston Villa supporters.

Former Wolves team-mates Robbie Keane, Rob Edwards, Lee Naylor and Joleon Lescott all joined Murray and daughter Taliya for the presentation.

Vital Wolves Comment: It was very nice for Sky Sports to actually realise what was happening and also showed snippets of the presentation.

Was a nice touch for us watching at home.
