Six-time league title winner, Crusaders defender Billy Joe Burns, says he fears Covid-19 testing is not the magic solution that will steer the Irish League through this crisis.

Burns, the 2016 Ulster Footballer of the Year and one of the most successful and experienced players in the game, has battled the virus along with the rest of his family and he also lost his uncle Vincent at the start of the pandemic. The defender, who has won three league titles at both Linfield and Crusaders, had to spend some time away from Seaview while he was recuperating after contracting the virus that ripped through his family.

Six Danske Bank Premiership matches will go ahead today, including Crusaders' home clash with Larne (12.30pm), after players and staff underwent Covid-19 testing on Thursday.
