Pen Pic

Coming through the ranks at Notts County the veteran impressed enough to make the 700,000 move to Sheffield United in 1998.

Following 72 appearances for the Blades, Derry signed for Portsmouth for a cut price, but after two seasons and 49 appearances he moved to London with Crystal Palace.

It was here that he truly shone as in his five years he helped Palace to the Premier League under Iain Dowie, and nearly repeated the feat for Leeds United a couple of years later.

Derry's Whites got to the final but were on the wrong end of a three goal reverse to Watford. Three years at Elland Road saw him return to Crystal Palace and once again rejuventated under Neil Warnock.

The Eagles boss took Derry and his side to the playoffs, but they faltered at the semi-final stage before he and fellow QPR player Clint Hill helped Palace valiantly battle to safety the following season.

He joined QPR with Hill in the summer of 2010. He proved a big hit despite some intial scepticism helping Rangers to promotion.

He was used sparingly by Neil Warnock, but was thrown back into the fray by Mark Hughes who clearly earmarked him as an important player in the run in. It proved to be a masterstroke as Derry acted as the heartbeat in a sprited fight to safety.

Derry was once again discarded by Rangers' management, but upon the departure of Hughes did find game time easier to come by, it couldn't however spare QPR from relegation in 2013.
