Glenn Murray

Glenn Murray has called time on his goal-laden career with Crystal Palace. Here are his top 10 strikes...

10. Palace 1-1 Blackpool. August 27, 2011

Glenn Murray leapt off the bench to score his first goal in a red and blue shirt and rescued a point for the Eagles. Dean Moxey sent in a cross from the left and Murray swept home with a trademark finish.

9. Palace 3-0 Brighton. December 1, 2012

The former Seagull foward netted the opening goal against his old side with a bullet header from a corner. Murray added another from the spot in the rout against Palace's old enemies at Selhurst Park.

8. Palace 2-1 Bristol City. February 19, 2013

The nation's leading scorer grabbed his 28th goal of the season to keep Palace's promotion bid on track. Muzza volleyed home Mile Jedinak's quick free-kick over the top from an acute angle to put the Eagles on their way to a precious three points.

7. Palace 2-2 Leeds. March 9, 2013

The goal machine had already netted for Palace with a header but he earned a point for his team with a late equaliser. Damien Delaney's raking cross-field pass saw Murray time his run to perfection to score with a first-time volley.

6. Swansea 1-1 Palace. March 2, 2014

This was Murray's first Premier League goal and it was an important one too as he helped give his side a vital point in their battle against the drop. Chico Flores was sent off for hauling Murray down when through on goal and the forward got up - and under fierce pressure - notched his first goal since his long-term knee injury.

5. Palace 2-1 Charlton. February 2, 2013

The Barrow-born forward helped wrap up three points against our South London rivals at Selhurst Park. Murray controlled a long ball into the area from Jazz Richards with his right foot before walloping an unstoppable shot with his left beyond a stranded Ben Hamer.

4. Brighton 1-3 Palace. September 28, 2011

The Eagles ventured to the south coast for this midweek game and secured a memorable victory with three goals in the last 10 minutes. Murray silenced the boo boys to make it 3-1 in stoppage time with a low finish into botom right corner the from the edge of the area.

3. Manchester Utd 1-2 Palace. November 30, 2011

Darren Ambrose might have lit up this Carling Cup quarter final with his wonderful long-range strike but it was Murray who got the shock winner. Championship side Palace saw off their illustrious opponents to reach the semi-final with Murray's extra-time header.

2. Palace 3-0 Derby. November 17, 2012

This was a collector's item for Murray. He took possession near the right touchline just beyond the halfway line and strode forward. Under pressure from a Derby defender, he cut inside the box and then unleashed a powerful strike past keeper Adam Legzdins.

1. Palace 4-1 Middlesbrough. February 16, 2013

This was a real belter from the marksman. Murray gathered a loose ball from Kagisho Dikgacoi's crunching tackle on the edge of the D. Then the division's leading scorer let fly with a brilliant left-foot shot that was still rising when it scorched into the far right corner for his second of the game.
