Peter Crouch has officially announced his retirement. May the robot celebration rest in peace.
The former England international defied all footballing logic with his slight physical frame and incredible height to enjoy a fine career in English football, and never more so than when he was at Liverpool.
After hearing the news Crouch had ended his playing career at the age of 38 and after 21 years as a professional footballer, Liverpool fans amongst others took to Twitter to pay their tributes to the striker.

Many supporters of the Merseyside club reminisced about the 38-year-old’s unbelievable overhead kicks and even jokingly suggested that some of his wonder strikes for the club were worth three goals.
Plenty of Reds fans wished Crouch well in his future and thanked the “legend” for his time at the club, and revealed that the gangly forward had inspired them.
Check out some of the reaction of Liverpool fans below:
Perfect hat-trick vs Arsenal

One of the best overhead goals I’ve seen. Thanks Peter.
You also had one of the best songs ever sung by the kop.

All the best big man. The first player who taught me not to judge a book by its cover.
