Peterborough United midfielder Grant McCann has ended his playing career to focus on coaching.

McCann, 35, made 181 appearances for Posh before leaving for Linfield in January, but he was named manager David Robertson's assistant last month.

He also won 39 international caps for Northern Ireland, scoring four goals.

"To play in the Premier League and every professional league in England has been something I really enjoyed," he told the Peterborough website.external-link

"Now I want to concentrate on helping the young lads at Peterborough flourish and pass on my knowledge to them.

"I can concentrate on being the best coach I can possibly be for the football club that I love."

Belfast-born McCann had spells with eight clubs during his 18-year career, making 577 appearances.
