If I was English would I be respected a bit more? Yes, I think so, that's the truth.
I am not a player to have regrets. I should have stayed at certain clubs longer, but I don't regret.
Every club if I am not playing, I leave because I want to play football. All I wanted to do since I was a kid is play football and if I wasn't at a club I'd be playing with my mates on a Sunday. I still come home and play five-a-side with my mates.
The press keep asking me but I will stop when I stop scoring. The problem is football is very ageist. When you reach 30, they keep talking about your age.
If I finish tomorrow and look back on the past years, I' d say, 'that wasn't bad'.

England was never my home. I had a home there but Dublin is my home so leaving Ireland was the hardest thing I had to do.
