This season, he was signed by Burnley but was curtailed, as he has been throughout his playing days, by injuries. Previously, he turned out for both Millwall and Blackburn Rovers, whose fans paid tribute to Reid on Twitter after the 34-year-old midfielder and defender announced his retirement from playing.
But it was West Brom fans who were the most vocal on social media in response to Reid's announcement.
Indeed, the Burnley man spent four years at the Hawthorns and supporters were keen to remind him 'once a Baggie, always a Baggie.'
Reid put in some memorable performance for West Brom over the years and will always be remembered for his work rate and professionalism.
The longest spell of his career came at Blackburn, of course, and who can forget one of the best goals in history during that time...?
The 34-year-old started his career at Millwall, where he lasted five years. He was limited to just a handful of appearances for Burnley this season but that didn't stop fans from paying their tributes to Reid on Twitter.
Here's a selection of what the West Brom faithful were saying, with Millwall and Blackburn fans pitching in slightly less frequently in and around social media, too...
