Cliftonville have been dealt a major blow after midfielder Ruairi Harkin was ruled out for a year because of a serious knee injury.

The 27-year-old sustained an anterior cruciate ligament injury in last weekend's win over Ballymena United.

Reds boss Gerard Lyttle revealed the extent of the injury after the 1-0 win at Coleraine on Friday night.

Harkin played for Derry City and Coleraine before moving to Solitude in the summer.
