FINN Harps have confirmed the signing of former Celtic winger Paddy McCourt.
The 18-times capped Northern Ireland international – dubbed ‘Derry’s Pele’ – is in line to make his Harps debut on Friday night when Ollie Horgan’s side open their 2017 season with a home game against Cork City.
But his signing has caused a mixed reaction on Twitter
Here’s what Twitter made of Finn Harp’s latest capture:
Don’t think there’s a global conflict that couldn’t be solved by getting politicians around a table to watch Paddy McCourt You Tube clips.

Paddy McCourt signs for Finn Harps. A guy with amazing skill, but the stamina of an asthmatic snail. Such a waste
