Roy Carroll refused to shake hands with Cliftonville players ahead of Linfield‘s NIFL Premiership clash with them this afternoon.
The former Wigan, Manchester United and Rangers goalkeeper now turns out for Linfield at the age of 40.
He seemingly wasn’t happy after Cliftonville players bowed their heads while God Save The Queen was played before the Irish Cup Final back in May.
One fan caught footage of the moment Carroll walked past the whole Cliftonville team as the sides shook hands before today’s league game.
And while it can’t yet be confirmed the motives behind Carroll’s snub, talk online suggests it’s a response to the Cliftonville players protesting the anthem:

It’s the first time Linfield have played Cliftonville since the Irish Cup Final back in May.
They were unable to go on and get a victory after Carroll’s snub, but they did come away from their Premiership rivals with a hard-fought 1-1 draw.
