Gary Pallister

Where is Gary Pallister now?

Having formed one of the best central defensive partnerships in Manchester United’s history with Steve Bruce, Gary Pallister left Old Trafford in 1998 to join former club Middlesbrough where he spent three years before retiring due to injury in 2001 at the age of 36.

Playing for just those two clubs in a 17 year career (apart from a brief loan spell at Darlington), he made nearly 600 appearances winning a number of trophies including four Premier League titles, three FA Cups and the European Cup Winner’s Cup.

He also represented the England national side on nine occasions between 1988 and 1996.

Since retiring Pallister has worked as a pundit on both the BBC and ITV and occasionally makes an appearance on Manchester United’s television channel MUTV.

He also spent time working as operations director at Darlington before teaming up with fellow Middlesbrough legends Craig Hignett and Bernie Slaven to set up the Boro Reds Football Academy where he is director of football.
