Helping out: Colin McKendry is keen to assist other clubs

Coleraine chairman Colin McKendry says his club are willing to contribute to a solidarity fund aimed at benefiting clubs throughout the league.

During discussions over how to end the league season, the debate over how European money should be distributed, if at all, created tensions between clubs.

McKendry said he and his club would "not be bullied" when he realised Coleraine had been excluded from talks which produced a 22-game proposal - a move that would have seen Cliftonville qualify for the Champions League with Linfield and Glentoran in the Europa League spots.
