Glentoran GK scores 80-yard goal with help from counterpart (video)

Glentoran

@Glentoran

Goalkeeper goals, especially those coming from the other half off the field, often carry the rank smell of counterpart error.

That is certainly the case here.

[ WATCH: Schurrle masterpiece goal for Fulham ]

East Belfast club Glentoran got the goal on Saturday morning via a looooong ball from goalkeeper Elliott Morris.

Institute backstop Martin Gallagher back pedals, back pedals, back pedals... and lets the ball hit his gloves and roll into the goal.

Like Asmir Begovic and Artur Boruc a few years ago, we suspect Morris won’t be celebrating unless he really, really dislikes Gallagher.
