Glentoran have suspended attacking midfielder Jordan Stewart for two weeks because of a "breach of contract".

The 20-year-old was handed the punishment after playing for another club last Saturday.

"The player recognises that he should not have done this," said the east Belfast club.

"Whilst he remains a key member of our playing staff, contracts exist to protect both the player and club's rights."

Stewart, who recently committed to a long-term contract with the Glens, is a key member of Eddie Patterson's side and helped the team to Irish Cup success in May.

His suspensions ends before the Premiership opener against Coleraine on 8 August.
