Liam Picken has been forced to retire due to his ongoing concussions issues, according to Tom Morris at Fox Footy.

The 32-year-old told teammates today that he would be bringing his to a close, Morris reports.

Picked hasn’t played a game since colliding with his teammate Josh Dunkley in the JLT series last year.

The clash with Dunkley was his second big head knock in under a year, after a brutal collision with Fremantle’s Tom Sheridan in round 3, 2017.

Picken was a cult hero at the Dogs, with his role in the 2016 premiership win etching him forever in the annals of the club’s history.

He famously kicked the late goal that shut the door on Sydney and confirmed a first flag in 62 years for the Dogs.

 

Picken played 198 games and booted 87 goals for the Dogs since being recruited with pick 30 in the 2008 draft.
