I think kind message like these are the least that he deserves when you think about it.

Having been an incredible servant to the club, racking up 125 appearances over the years, itโ€™s time for him to move on to the next part of his career, and judging by the reaction of the fans, it seems as if heโ€™s going to be sorely missed on the field, but with plenty still cheering him on in his new role.

Iโ€™m talking of course about Craig Gardner.

The 33-year-old midfielder announced last year that he was going to be taking a step back from the pitch and move into the backroom at the end of the season, and he looks to have gotten a head start on that new line of work when the players returned to training these past few weeks.

Speaking to the club, he reflected on his playing times and what the next stage of his life is going to bring.

“I’ve loved every single second of my career. I can’t wait for my new journey in coaching.”

Which Gardner has been the better Blue?
