Former Manchester United goalkeeper Roy Carroll has been declared bankrupt while playing for his current club Olympiakos, Insolvency News can exclusively reveal.
The news comes despite a string of recent accolades for Carroll. The Northern Ireland goalkeeper was part of the team which this year won the Greek Cup and Greek Super League.
At the start of the month, the 35-year-old saw off the challenge of Niall McGinn – who has netted 20 goals for Aberdeen – and Jonny Evans who helped Manchester United win their 20th title to be crowned the Vauxhall International [Football] Personality of the Year.
Despite this, he was officially declared bankrupt at the High Court on Tuesday last week.
Carroll became the first choice goalkeeper for Olympiakos in the 2012/13 season but his contract is believed to now be up for renewal.
The Northern Ireland international was previously signed by Manchester United for an undisclosed fee. This was reported at around £2.5 million at the time. His trophy collection includes an FA Cup winners’ medal from 2004.
He has previously played for Hull City, Wigan Athletic, West Ham United, Glasgow Rangers and Derby County, among others.
In Carroll’s bankruptcy report, his last known address is listed as Olympiakos FC but another address in Greece as well as one on Theydon Bois, Essex is also listed.
