Taking in spells at Blackburn, Chelsea, Newcastle, Fulham, Melbourne City and, of course, Shamrock Rovers, his club highlights were undoubtedly the two Premier League titles he picked up with Chelsea in 2005 and 2006 under Jose Mourinho.

The Dubliner was an international legend, picking up exactly 100 caps for his country and starring at the 2002 World Cup.

Twitter has been alive to wish Duffer all the best.
