Controversial former Rangers midfielder Liam Burt has been back in the headlines this month after he scored a screamer from the halfway line in the League of Ireland.

Burt, 22, would then follow up the goal with yet another fine finish for new side Bohemians this week as he catches the eye in Southern Ireland.

The first strike came earlier in September only 12 seconds after the restart with Bohemians trailing 3-0 away to Drogheda United.

The stunning effort would loop over the top of the opposition goalkeeper and into the back of the net but it could not inspire a full Bohemians comeback even if the match ended 3-2.

Burt would then net an absolute stunner to open the scoring in the eventual 3-3 clash between Bohemians and Derry City.

 

The midfielder rocketed the ball high into the back of the net as his run of fine strikes continues following his move to Bohemians in February this year.

This was after the player – who came through the youth ranks at Rangers – spent some time on the books of Old Firm rivals Celtic.

Liam Burt – who played three times for Rangers – courted controversy by claiming he was “back home” after signing on at Celtic Park.

Despite signing a two-year deal at Parkhead in 2019, Burt was out the door only a year later before signing on with Bohemians in February this year.

The midfielder has since made 31 appearances in the Republic of Ireland, scoring eight goals and laying on eight assists.
