Stephen Garrett has left Cliftonville after a ten-year spell with the club.

The 33-year-old who made his debut for the Reds back in 2010 went onto make 358 appearances for Cliftonville.

The attacker picked up several accolades during his time at Solitude, including back-to-back league titles in 2013 and 2014 while also helping his teammates to win four league cups between 2013 and 2016.

“All good things must come to an end," Garrett said in a post on social media.

"Thank you to each and every one of you for your amazing support over the last decade,” he continued.

"I'll be forever proud to have spent over 10 years and played over 350 games at such a fantastic club. I've made some incredible memories  and brilliant friendships that will last a lifetime.

"I wish the players, board and fans every success in the coming seasons and look forward to returning to Solitude in the not too distant future,” the striker concluded.

Following their Irish league cup defeat to Glentoran at Windsor Park last Friday, Reds boss Paddy McLaughlin will be turning his focus to their next campaign.

McLaughlin will be hopeful that his side can improve on last season’s fourth placed finish and challenge the likes of Linfield and Coleraine at the top of the league table.
