Watch: McClean Scores Remarkable Late Winner With Overhead Kick

Patrick McClean's overhead kick late in the game secured Glentoran a 3-2 win over Larne in their Irish Premiership clash at Inver Park.

The 22-year old defender was at hand to deliver a last-gasp blow with a superb finish. The result lifts then to two points behind third-placed Cliftonville.

McClean, younger brother of Irish international James, scored the goal on the same day it was announced he had signed a new two-year deal with the club.

McClean's effort combined with a Paul O'Neill double was enough to secure all three points as they continue their search for a European spot.

Meanwhile, in Dublin, a 0-0 draw with city rivals St. Patrick's Athletic was enough to secure Bohemians a spot in Europe. It is a superb feat for Keith Long and his young outfit, who held out despite having James Finnerty sent off.
