  1. That's all!

    Linfield crowned champions

    A 4-0 defeat won't dampen the celebrations. Linfield, newly crowned Irish Premiership champions, will toast their success long into the night.

    Well and truly beaten by the Lurgan Blues on the day, David Healy's Blues have been the best of the bunch throughout this season and nobody can begrudge them their latest championship.

    Deposed champions Crusaders endured a disappointing afternoon, their 2-0 derby defeat to Cliftonville eliminating any chance of catching second-placed Ballymena United, who edged Coleraine 1-0 at home in today's other derby.

    Michael McLellan's free-kick gave Ards a massive victory at Institute, which lifted Warren Feeney's side above Newry City at the bottom.

    Congratulations once again to Linfield, champions for the 53rd time.

    We're back again on Tuesday night with live text coverage of all six games.

  2. Baxter focused on cup final after missing out on second

    Cliftonville 2-0 Crusaders

    Quote Message: Always disappointed to lose a football match, particularly against our closest rivals. It's been an interesting season. We've had to work around injuries, suspensions and cup finals. The chase for second place was there, we gave it our best shot. I wasn't happy with the first half today and there were bits I liked in the second. I can't be too hard on the players, that's the way it goes. I don't think it's been a poor run. We've played OK in the last few games so I don't read too much into it. You have to work with what you have so we just have to try and get some of our players fit for the cup final. from Stephen Baxter Crusaders manager

  6. Mulgrew delighted to right the wrongs of last season

    Quote Message: This is very special. They are all very special when they come around but after the disaster of last season you sort of wonder if we were capable of doing what we've done. We have answered the critics and the questions we asked of ourselves. What happened last year probably made us all think about ourselves and we we needed to do. Maybe not getting into Europe was a blessing in disguise because it was a complete reality check for us all. from Jamie Mulgrew Linfield captain

    Cliftonville 2-0 Crusaders

    Quote Message: Delighted with a win, first and foremost. It keeps the momentum going which we've been building for the last few weeks. The boys are getting stronger, week to week, I think you can definitely see that and that's great for us, coming to the end of the season. Going into these European play-offs, it's big for us, an opportunity to play at that level. We have a strong squad and we can rotate so we'll have to see what we can do for Tuesday. Ryan [Catney] has been superb. He led the team out today and gave a man of the match performance. That's what he's all about, he's a leader. He's had a fantastic career and deserved that send-off today. from Paddy McLaughlin Cliftonville manager

  11. Waterworth celebrates third Gibson Cup

    Quote Message: Linfield demands success. it's a club built on success and when you don't do that its deemed a failure. Last year we didn't pick up a trophy and were very poor in the league, we had to rectify that this season. As you enter the highlight of your career you know that it is coming to an end, you have to cherish days like this. It was a bitter taste today getting pumped 4-0 but I will try to put that on the backburner and enjoy the success. from Andrew Waterworth Linfield striker
