Definitely didn't see that coming. Big loss given the exodus of defenders who have already parted Rovers in the summer.

Your remaining centre halves are likely better than Mark Reynolds and Morgyn Neill if that's any consolation. That and you must have someone lined up before he throws the towel in like that 

We don't have any remaining centre halves.

I think there’s more to this than what Raith are saying not too long ago he was appointed as player coach but more solely looking to coach than play when we did get the CHs in now he’s fully retired In my honest opinion I think there’s a bit more to this……. But good luck to him on the retirement had a good career

He played on Sunday and also has a coaching role with us  which he's presumably giving up as well. 

I can't help but feel there's a lot more to this. 

Feels that way from the outside, otherwise surely he’d help out until bodies in the door

Got to say I thought Berra looked miles off it in the Dumbarton game. Thought he maybe had a knock but perhaps he's just realised he's done during some of the games.

Yeah he looked physically done by the end of last season too I thought. Ach I really hope it’s just as strait forward as that or perhaps something in his personal life rather than a falling out or something equally comical.

Surely he just realised the last few games that he couldn't reach standard he'd set during his career. He's never looked the same since the injury last season.

If we can free up wages now and bring in 2-3 players before Saturday them hopefully this will be more positive than negative news

Probably a bit earner + a coaching wage. Maybe he's off to allow us to bring more than one player in?

That may be the case but given we have so many spaces left in the squad, I’d be worried if we needed to get him off the books to bring others in at this late stage.

Berra would have easily been the top earner in the squad though

This is fucking mental. Even the Anelka pre-season didn’t seem as mental as this one. If we are still in the Championship next season I’ll be amazed.

Surely Murray knew that was happening? Has he fallen out with someone and thinks he’s had enough of playing? Stuff happens in players careers where they come to realise that they don’t want to play anymore but it’s a very odd time to retire when the league starts in a few days.

I hope that's the case. It definitely makes sense from a playing perspective but unless there are off field issues it's hard to understand why he couldn't have played on for a few more weeks to allow any new signings to integrate.
