Watch: Stroke of genius from Linfield's Kirk Millar wins NIFWA January Goal of the Month

Kirk Millar celebrated his 150th Linfield appearance with three assists on Tuesday evening.

That was enough to help his side claim all three points at Warrenpoint and his week got even better when Millar discovered he had won the NIFWA's January Goal of the Month competition.

It was a curling effort into the top corner that helped the Blues to down Glebe Rangers 5-0 in the fifth round of the Irish Cup and proved enough to top the rankings in January. As if the perfect placing of the effort wasn't enough, the talented attacker actually struck the shot with the outside of his right boot. Because he can.

Millar's strike was one of 63 goals to go in on an action-packed fifth round day that included a few more top class efforts.

Watch the top five here, including Kirk Millar's goal of the month (Goal D):
