The high-profile retirement of Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has understandably dominated sports headlines over the past few weeks, given the fact that the most successful manager in British football history has called time on his 26-year reign at Old Trafford.

But, after the curtain came down on another memorable Premier League campaign this weekend, fans from all over the country were forced to bid fond farewells to a number of household names, also leaving the nation's favourite game.

With thousands of appearances, goals and trophies amassed between them, there was a real feeling of change afoot England's top-flight on Sunday, as some of the most popular, prolific and cherished players turned out for the last time in their professional careers.

Ferguson bowed out in emphatic style in his 1500th game as Manchester United manager, watching his newly crowned Premier League champions play out a 5-5 draw with West Bromwich Albion at The Hawthorns.

Meanwhile, Paul Scholes - making his 499th Premier League appearance as a second-half substitute - brought an end to his one-club career (for a second time) in the same game, in a typically understated, low-key fashion.
