Out in cold: Joel Cooper wasn’t able to play for Linfield against Warrenpoint

Carrick Rangers blew the whistle on the Irish FA's latest registration blunder that could have plunged the Danske Bank Premiership into turmoil.

Linfield manager David Healy was fuming on Saturday after having to pull winger Joel Cooper out of his starting line-up just 40 minutes before his side's 6-0 home win over Warrenpoint for fear that the player would have been ineligible.

This was after the Blues believed everything had been sorted with the paperwork concerning Cooper's loan deal from Oxford United until the end of the season.
