ONE time Crusaders captain Colin Coates has signed for the Crues' north Belfast rivals Cliftonville.

The Reds have posted a photo on their social media channels showing the former NI international defender signing for the Solitude club.

The 35-year-old spent 18 years at Seaview where he made 577 appearances before being released in 2020.

He spent last season at Glenavon but was a free agent after being released by the Lurgan club in the summer.

Capped six times by Northern Ireland, it's a move that is sure to spark great interest across the league - and especially in north Belfast.
