Keith Andrews has been named first-team coach at MK Dons, after announcing retirement following his release by Bolton.

Andrews, who joined Wanderers on a free transfer from West Bromwich Albion in June 2012, played just 29 games during a three year spell with the club and spent the last two seasons on loan at Brighton & Hove Albion, Watford and, most recently, MK Dons.

The 34-year-old departed Macron Stadium when his contract expired in June and, having been linked with a return to stadiummk throughout the summer, Andrews has been appointed to the coaching staff at the newly-promoted Championship side.

Andrews will work alongside manager Karl Robinson and Head of Coaching Richie Barker with the Dons and he has described his new position as 'perfect', after linking up with a club where he holds legendary status.

"I absolutely love my new role and this is the perfect place for me to start learning," Andrews told

"I think everybody knows how much I want to be here. It's where I want to ply my trade and it's a joy to work with everyone, in particular the young lads who I hope to have a real effect on in terms of coaching and analysis.

"I'm just obsessed with football. I never switch off for a second - even when I'm watching a game at home on the sofa, I'm analysing it.

"I'm just looking to evolve as I go along and it certainly won't be through a lack of effort if I don't to get to where I want to go to."
