The 62-year-old has been working alongside manager Karl Robinson at stadium:mk since 2010 but has decided this campaign will be his last.

With the Dons in the League One play-offs for the second year running, the former Wycombe boss, who confessed it had been a tough decision to make, will be aiming to finish on a high.

"It is with a heavy heart that I announce my retirement from football," he told the club's official website. "It has been a difficult decision really; it's just something I have felt for a while now even though I absolutely love being here at this club.

"I feel it has been a very successful time, it has been two great years and I just feel that maybe I could finish on a high. I have had some health issues that are starting to restrict my day-to-day duties and with that in mind I believe it is the right time to make this decision.

"I have thought about it for a while and have given both the chairman and Karl enough notice to plan for the club's future. I have thoroughly enjoyed my two years at Milton Keynes Dons and I am extremely proud to be associated with the players in our squad and the club itself."

sn'tthis strange. Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
