Burton Albion defender Chris Riggott retires

Chris Riggott

Injury-plagued Burton Albion defender Chris Riggott has retired because of a persistent back problem.

Riggott, 31, joined the Brewers on a short-term deal in February after a brief second stint with Derby County.

But the ex-Middlesbrough and Cardiff City centre-half failed to play a first-team game for the Brewers.

Riggott told BBC Radio Derby: "It's a massive shame and frustrating and I had such high hopes of getting back and playing games and football."
