An emotional Wes Hoolahan can't hold back the tears as he gives farewell speech at Norwich

Canaries owner Delia Smith was alongside the former Ireland midfielder, who is leaving the club after 10 years.

LAST WEEKEND SAW Norwich City celebrate Wes Hoolahan’s 10 years of service to the club.

The Dubliner will leave the Championship club this summer, having joined from Blackpool back in 2008, and enjoyed the perfect send-off in his final game at Carrow Road on Saturday — receiving a guard of honour before captaining the team to a 2-1 win over Leeds United thanks to his goal and an assist for the winner.

At 35, the talented midfielder, who announced his retirement from international football with Ireland back in February after winning 43 senior caps, says he would like to continue playing, but it is not yet clear where he will be at the start of next season.

A video has surfaced today of a teary-eyed Wes giving his farewell speech alongside Canaries owner Delia Smith after Saturday’s game.

In it, the emotional Hoolahan breaks down, but recovers to mention “a pint of Guinness” before thanking the players, who were “fucking brilliant”.

A fine servant who will surely be missed at Norwich.
