“I have been really surprised by the amount of people who have been talking about it and contacting me,” he said.
“I got a lot of texts that night from people I know who were at the match and the boys were giving me a bit of stick too, but the next day it all went a wee bit crazy.
“I got loads of messages and people were phoning me up saying that thousands and thousands of people had seen it on the Internet and that all these newspapers and TV stations all over the world were putting it on their sites.
“It’s incredible, really, and I couldn’t believe it when someone told me that it had gone up to over a million hits.”
“It’s not often that Irish League football gets a mention on such a scale, so I am happy that I have been able to give Glentoran, and our league, a bit of a lift,” he said.
“Hopefully people can pay a bit more attention to it because we the players know the standard is a lot better than some people think it is.”
“Daryl Fordyce is in my position at the minute and he is the league’s top goal scorer so it will be hard to shift him,” he added. “Hopefully I will have at least given the manager a headache!”
