Angry Glentoran fans protest, urging Mick McDermott to ‘leave their club’ as boss demands police escort to leave The Oval after latest defeat

Angry Glentoran fans demanded the resignation of manager Mick McDermott after yet another disastrous performance at the BetMcLean Oval.

Rate supporters staged a parking lot protest following the Glens’ 1-0 home loss to Larne, calling on McDermott to “quit their club”.

McDermott required a police escort to leave the East Belfast venue after being booed all around at the full-time whistle.

Lee Bonis struck a crucial second-half winner to doom the Glens to their fifth straight Premiership defeat.

It’s the first time Glentoran have lost five straight league games in a single season since 1935 – some 88 years ago!

McDermott’s side have now won just two of their last 12 games – and they met Premier Intermediate League bottom Portadown and Moyola Park in the Irish Cup.

When referee Christopher Morrison sounded the final whistle, boos echoed through the aging stadium, with McDermott the primary target.

Fans then rallied in the parking lot to stage an official protest, once again calling out to the boss of McDermott, who was brought in four years ago to help spearhead the takeover of Iran-based businessman Ali Pour.

They once attempted to enter the player’s entrance but were prevented from doing so by a heavy police presence.

They repeatedly shouted “Mick McDermott get out of our club” and it wasn’t until around 5.30pm that police managed to clear the car park of the deviant supporters before the manager left the premises.

It remains to be seen if McDermott will grant these frustrated and angry fans their wish. The club shamefully failed to appoint a media officer.

The questions remain. Can McDermott survive? And can the Glens break a spiral of results to salvage a season that seems to be tumbling from bad to worse on a weekly basis?
