Michael Owen to retire from football - do you remember his double against Scunthorpe United ?
Stoke City striker Michael Owen has announced he is to retire from football at the end of the season.
Owen lists Liverpool, Real Madrid and Newcastle United among his former clubs and played against Scunthorpe United in the colours of Manchester United in September 2010.
The striker scored twice against the Iron in a 5-2 victory for Sir Alex Ferguson's side in front of a record Glanford Park crowd of 9,077.
Josh Wright gave Scunthorpe a dream start by putting the home side 1-0 up but Darron Gibson and Chris Smalling had the Reds ahead by half-time.
