Linfield manager David Healy insists the Blues are "worthy league winners" after his side were named champions of the curtailed 2019-20 campaign.

Healy's side retain the title via a mathematical formula which was sought after the Covid-19 crisis slammed the brakes on the Danske Bank Premiership campaign after 31 games.

The Blues held a four-point lead at the top when the season was suspended in March and have now been awarded the Gibson Cup after the final standings were determined by 21st Club, an independent stats company.
