New Linfield signing Navid Nasseri has revealed his delight at joining David Healy's team and outlined his desire to make "many unforgettable memories" at Windsor Park after leaving Glentoran.

The winger's stunning move across the city was confirmed by the Blues on Saturday - less than 14 hours after Nasseri helped the Glens to Irish Cup final glory against Ballymena United, claiming the Oval outfit's first trophy for five years.

The transfer led to a social media frenzy with Glentoran supporters blasting the player and the backlash continued yesterday after he posted a farewell message to the east Belfast club, saying that Irish Cup success was his way of saying thank you.
