Does not redirect

Thank you for response.
Since that day I was trying hard on re-direct my users after login according to their levels i.e "admin", "clerk", "client" and guest.
I checked the process by printing out before each steps and have the following result:
1a: UserName :admin01
1b: UserName :admin01
1c: UserRole :-admin
5: session statrted
7: LoginFormAction
13: isset($_POST[Username])= true
15: username: clerk01
17: Password:clerk01
18: UserRorle:clerk
Asign $MM_redirectLoginSuccess = getTheUserPage($UserRole)
19: Function getTheUserPage started
19b4switch: UserRole =clerk
19clerk: UserRole =clerk
19return UserRole:clerk
20: User LoginFounduser found
23: redirectLoginSuccess, call getUserPage

That shows my code was running but is not giving the required results as it is showing the user redirected page.
The code is as follows:
<? php

///////////// Find the loginsuccess page

function getTheUserPage($UserRole){
echo ('<br>'.' 19: Function getTheUserPage started'.'<br>');
echo ('19b4switch: UserRole ='.$UserRole.'<br>');
switch($UserRole) {
case "admin":
header("Location: admin/admin-index.php");
echo ('19admin: UserRole ='.$UserRole.'<br>');
case "client":
header("Location: clerk/clerk-index.php");
echo ('19client: UserRole ='.$UserRole.'<br>');
case "clerk":
header("Location: client/client-index.php");
echo ('19clerk: UserRole ='.$UserRole.'<br>');
case "guest":
header("Location: guest-index.php");
echo ('19guest: UserRole ='.$UserRole.'<br>');
// return $UserRole;
echo ('19return UserRole:'.$UserRole.'<br>');

//////////// DB operation

mysql_select_db($database_MySQLonlineConnection, $MySQLonlineConnection);
$query_GetCustomers = "SELECT * FROM users";
$GetCustomers = mysql_query($query_GetCustomers, $MySQLonlineConnection) or die(mysql_error());
$row_GetCustomers = mysql_fetch_assoc($GetCustomers);
$totalRows_GetCustomers = mysql_num_rows($GetCustomers);

echo ('1a: UserName :'.$row_GetCustomers['UserName'].'<br> 1b: UserName :'.$row_GetCustomers['UserPassword'].'<br>'); // username = admin01
echo ('1c: UserRole :-'.$row_GetCustomers['UserRole'].'<br>'); // UserRole= admin
// *** Validate request to login to this site.

if (!isset($_SESSION)) {
echo ('5: session statrted'.'<br>'); ///////////////////// Session initialized!!!

$loginFormAction = $_SERVER['PHP_SELF'];
echo('7: LoginFormAction '.'<br>'); /////////////////// LoginFormaction strated!!!
