Glentoran manager Ronnie McFall last night blasted his players after they capitulated to an embarrassing 4-0 defeat by Linfield at Windsor Park.

The Big Two mauling saw Linfield move two points behind Danske Bank Premiership pacesetters Ballymena United, but the mood was very different in the away dressing room.

"It is an embarrassing day," said McFall. "It goes without saying that the club is well short of quality players to get them back to where they want to be.

"At the end of the day the players have got to take pride in wearing the jersey and you have got to question are they good enough to wear the red, green and black. Today has shown that a lot of them are not, it is just as simple as that."

The Glens, who also had Robbie McDaid sent off, are without a league victory since October and are on their longest winless run in the top flight since 1994.

Ballymena were held 3-3 at home by Coleraine while in the north Belfast derby at Solitude, Crusaders hammered Cliftonville 5-1 with Paul Heatley bagging a hat-trick.
