Former Glentoran boss Ronnie McFall is predicting a return to the days of Linfield and the Glens battling for the top trophies.

Irish League legend Ronnie McFall says the Big Two rivalry is alive again and he’s predicting Glentoran will be a “big threat” to champions Linfield next season.

The Glens are still on a high after lifting the Irish Cup and bagging their first trophy since 2015. That sweet success over Ballymena United in last Friday’s decider also secured Europa League football and now the dream target for the east Belfast giants is a first league championship since 2009.

McFall finished his playing career at Glentoran and also had two spells in charge of the club.
