The Seagulls legend announced his retirement from the professional game last week, evoking widespread tributes from those associated with the club.

And while Albion’s attentions will probably be focused on bringing in a forward a tad younger than the 37-year-old, he still hasn’t ruled out the possibility of returning to the Amex one day in some capacity.

“I feel as though the time is right and I wanted to retire at a good level,” Murray, who is set to go into the media industry, told the official club website.

“I’ve had a lot of good years in the game, but this seems the right time to call it a day.

“Give me six months, a year and I might miss it so much that I want to give back to the club in some capacity as a coach. But at the moment that isn’t the route I am going down.”

For his part, Albion boss Graham Potter added: “Glenn has been outstanding for this football club, a great pro and a pleasure to work with. He has quite rightly earned legend status here for what he has achieved and his professionalism.

“He will always be welcome back at Brighton, whether that’s at the training ground or the Amex, and I am sure the fans will look forward to showing their appreciation for Glenn at some point in the future.”
