Fulham striker Andy Cole has dismissed rumours that he is set to hang up his boots at the end of the season.

The 33-year-old striker has a contract at Craven Cottage until 2006 and the former Manchester United player says he wants to bow out on a high.

“I am a bit older now so there is less pressure and I can enjoy it more now.” said Cole.

“I want to retire on a high as I am my own worse critic.”

Cole has scored 12 times this season for Fulham in what has been a largely disappointing season for Chris Coleman’s side.
