Gary Kelly

Where is Gary Kelly now?

Leeds United legend Gary Kelly spent his entire career at Elland Road making more than 500 appearances for the club before retiring in 2007 at the age of 32.

Playing for 15 years, he made his debut in the 1991-92 title-winning season but unfortunately did not qualify for a medal as he hadn’t played enough games.

Away from the domestic side of the game he was an important member of the Republic of Ireland national side winning 52 caps and representing them in the 1994 and 2002 FIFA World Cup finals.

When he retired he donated €750,000 from his testimonial match to open the Gary Kelly Cancer Support Centre in Drogheda after his sister died from breast cancer at the age of 35 .

In February 2014 he expressed an interest in the vacant Leeds United manager’s job after Brian McDermott was sacked but he never formally put himself forward.

In March 2016, he opened a state-of-the-art gym in Drogheda called the GK Gym which he himself along with other members of his family.
