As a talented youngster, Gary broke through to earn a regular first-team place at Tottenham Hotspur in the second half of 2000-01.

He quickly showed his goalscoring potential, netting with a great header in the 4-2 win over Newcastle United and following that with a late winner in the FA Cup Third Round tie at Leyton Orient.

He seemed to favour the rough and tumble of the cup, because he also scored in the Sixth Round game against West Ham United and in the semi-final defeat by Arsenal.

Gary is very versatile and is equally at home in defence or playing as a striker using his height to good effect at both ends of the pitch.

He continued to represent the Republic of Ireland during the campaign winning a further three caps at Under-21 level and also featuring five times for the full squad.

Gary joined Norwich City in August 2004 with a three-year contract that was extended to June 2008 in May 2007 and to June 2010 in July 2008.

He joined Charlton Athletic in July 2010 with a two-year contract.

After a loan spell, Gary joined Wycombe Wanderers in July 2012 with a two-year contract that was extended to June 2015 in May 2014.

He announced his retirement in December 2014 due to a knee injury.
