This certainly went under the radar yesterday.
Keith Andrews has called time on his playing career at the age of 34.
The Dubliner has taken up a full-time coaching role with MK Dons, the club where he really made his name before getting a Premier League move to Blackburn in 2008.

In a statement released yesterday, MK Dons said that Andrews would be taking up the role and would not be registered as a player for the forthcoming season.
Speaking about his new job, the 35-cap Ireland international said that he viewed it as the 'perfect place from him to start learning'.
I absolutely love my new role and this is the perfect place for me to start learning.
I think everybody knows how much I want to be here. It’s where I want to ply my trade and it’s a joy to work with everyone, in particular the young lads who I hope to have a real effect on in terms of coaching and analysis.
I’m just obsessed with football. I never switch off for a second – even when I’m watching a game at home on the sofa, I’m analysing it. I’m just looking to evolve as I go along and it certainly won’t be through a lack of effort if I don’t to get to where I want to go to.
