  1. That's all folks

    Cliftonville 3-2 Glentoran

    A reminder that the Europa League qualifying round draw is on 19 June.

    That's that then. I have a feeling we will be talking about the 2017/18 Irish Premiership season for many years to come. It's been utterly compelling from the first day until the last, and Cliftonville have grabbed the final European spot.

    Thanks for joining us today and indeed all season, it's been quite something. Let's do it all again from August - see you then.

  2. McDaid pulls one back

  4. Referee played key role in result - Harding

    Cliftonville 3-2 Glentoran

    Quote Message: We are a bit disappointed that having scored the second goal we didn't go on and win it. When we analyse it, the referee has played a big part in how this game's gone. The first goal is a clear handball and when we scored our second goal arguably their centre-back should be sent off for denying a clear goal scoring opportunity. from Kieran Harding Glentoran assistant manager

  5. 'We believed we would win it' - Donnelly

    Cliftonville 3-2 Glentoran

    Quote Message: We were 2-0 up and cruising. When they got it back to 2-2 we knew we had enough in this team to kick on. [The first goal] came of my foot and hit my hand, these decisions sometimes go for you and sometimes they go against you, it went for us today. Our priority was to get into Europe and we've done that - we just need to kick on next season. from Rory Donnelly Cliftonville striker

  6. Gray delights in "absolutely crazy" win

    Cliftonville 3-2 Glentoran

    Quote Message: It was absolutely crazy. We're delighted to get the win and what we should focus on is the character of the players to come back and get the third goal. We came here to get the win and we've done that so we can enjoy it now. I thought we were on top for large patches of the game, we've met one of our objectives and that was to achieve European football. We will learn from our experiences this year and build on them next season. from Barry Gray Cliftonville manager

    Cliftonville 3-2 Glentoran

    It was not the plain sailing it looked to be with 10 minutes left but Cliftonville have won and will be in the Europa League qualifying round one draw on 19 June.

    A game fit to close the curtain on this season.

    The £200,000 cheque is Cliftonville's.

  8. Talking points

    Cliftonville 3-2 Glentoran

    Cliftonville have been the better team today and looked in control before McDaid nabbed one back. However there are question marks over their first goal and whether Breen should have been sent off when he brought down McDaid and conceded a penalty.

    The Glens looked out of it, pulled themselves back to level terms with a three-and-a-half minute blitz only for Joe Gormley (who else?) to go up the other end and restore the Reds' lead.

    We are into time added on.

  9. Three minutes plus stoppage time

    Cliftonville 3-2 Glentoran

    Who knows how this might end, predict nothing, expect anything. Cliftonville and about three minutes plus injury time away from a European berth but Glentoran may have something to say about that.

  10. GOAL

    Cliftonville 3-2 Glentoran

    Joe Gormley. Oh my goodness. This season is something else.

    Rory Donnelly's initial effort was blocked but the ball is recycled to Gormley who hammers home. Wow.

  11. GOAL

    Cliftonville 2-2 Glentoran

    Gary Breen brought down Robbie McDaid for the spot-kick. Up steps Curtis Allen, we are level. Oh my, where did this come from?


    Cliftonville 2-1 Glentoran


  13. GOAL

    Cliftonville 2-1 Glentoran

    Out of nowhere, Robbie McDaid pulls one back. This was not looking on the cards as Brian Neeson has been untroubled for the majority of this match but his defence seemed to stop and McDaid found himself alone from six yards out and made no mistake.

    10 minutes to go, grandstand finish anyone?

  14. Morris keeps the Glens in it

    Cliftonville 2-0 Glentoran

    What a brilliant double-save by Elliot Morris. Curran slides through Rory Donnelly who thinks he is in for a hat-trick but Morris dives low to keep it out, Gormley is following up and looks like he will just tap it into the empty net but Morris somehow gets back up to thwart Gormley's effort.

    Will that wake Glentoran up?

  15. GOAL

    Cliftonville 2-0 Glentoran

    Fine counter-attacking move and Rory Donnelly has his and Cliftonville's second. It's fantastic play from Chris Curran who takes the ball on the edge of his own box and slides a lovely pass through to Joe Gormley on the left. Gormley's left-footed cross to the back post is inch perfect to the onrushing Donnelly who snatches at his first attempt but gets a second bite of the cherry and finishes from close range.


    Cliftonville 1-0 Glentoran

    Big chance as Jamie Harney rises highest to meet a Cliftonville corner, his header is going wide but Joe Gormley is there and should really score from a few yards out as he diverts his team-mate's effort towards goal with a header of his own, but it clips off the bar and goes over.

  17. Attacking intent

    Cliftonville 1-0 Glentoran

    The old cliche 'the next goal is crucial' certainly rings true here and both sides know it. Curtis Allen can't wrap his foot around a 25-yard free kick as it sails wide whilst Conor McDonald's daisy-cutter at the other end doesn't trouble Elliot Morris as it goes round the other side of the post.

  18. Back underway

    Cliftonville 1-0 Glentoran

    The second 45 minutes begin with no changes from either side.

  19. Gormley's disallowed goal

    Cliftonville 1-0 Glentoran

    Joe Gormley thought he had doubled his side's lead but the referee blew the whistle to chalk it off.

    Cliftonville 1-0 Glentoran

    Two big talking points in the half as Rory Donnelly's goal separates the sides at the break.

    Should the goal have stood? Should Joe Gormley's effort have been disallowed?

    Well it wouldn't be right if this season ended with a boring game, would it?
