Ross Gaynor scores twice as Linfield closed the gap on Irish Premiership leaders Crusaders to five points by beating Glentoran 3-0.

Gaynor converted a 21st-minute penalty and then Glens defender Calum Birney was sent-off in the 82nd minute.

Aaron Burns coolly slotted home after a poor clearance by Elliott Morris on 86 minutes and Gaynor added the third with a low, hard finish in added time.
