Legend Noel Bailie has doffed his cap in the direction of Linfield skipper Jamie Mulgrew, who last week achieved a new club European appearance milestone.

When the 34-year-old led David Healy's boys out for their Champions League Preliminary Round tie against Tre Fiori, he overtook Bailie in the record stakes, having pulled on the famous blue jersey 37 times on the UEFA circuit.

Bailie, who made a record 1,013 appearances for Linfield before calling time on a glittering career back in 2011, reckons Mulgrew has now written his name into the rich fabric of the club.
