Brede Hangeland retires from football
Former Crystal Palace defender Brede Hangeland has announced he has retired from professional football.
The 35-year-old, who scored four goals in 91 appearances for Norway, made 238 appearances during his eight-year stay in London for Fulham and Crystal Palace.
Spending the first five years of his senior career at Norwegian club Viking, the 6ft 6in centre back was signed by Fulham in 2008 after two years at Copenhagen.
Hangeland then moved to The Eagles in August 2014 on a free transfer and was released at the end of the 2015/16 season.
Good luck for the future, Brede, and thanks for the last 2 years!
