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."

icky van Wolfswinkel's remarkable record of one goal from one game at least deserves an honourable mention. And I'm willing to bet that at least one of Costa, Ulloa or Enner Valencia will earn a place on the list by the end of the season. Probably not Costa
