Western Bulldogs veteran Liam Picken has called an end to his AFL career due to ongoing concussion symptoms.

The 32-year-old hasn’t played at AFL level since suffering a head injury in a 2018 pre-season match despite valiant attempts to make a comeback over the past 12 months.

Picken, who made his AFL debut in 2009 and has played 198 games, told his teammates on Monday he would retire effective immediately.
