Former Celtic and Northern Ireland star Paddy McCourt scored a stunning goal on his return to the Finn Harps side on Saturday.

'The Derry Pele' has scored some crackers in his storied career and reminded everyone of just what he was capable of by grabbing a goal after just 15 minutes as Finn Harps went on to win 7-1 against Cabinteely.

Harps are guaranteed a play-off spot in the League of Ireland First Division and will be glad to have McCourt back for the run in.

McCourt currently juggles playing for Harps with running the Derry City FC Academy.

He became a cult hero to Celtic fans spending five years at the Parkhead club, picking up two SPL winners medals.

The maverick talent also made 18 appearances for Northern Ireland, scoring two goals.
