Barry Gray has given his first broadcast interview since he was sacked as Cliftonville manager last week...

His departure followed a turbulent 20 months at Solitude and culminated in a string of defeats.

However, in his first season in charge last year Gray had taken the team to the Irish Cup final and a place in Europe.

Speaking exclusively to Q Radio, the Newry businessman has said he's disappointed at how it all ended...

Gray says he's not ruling out a return to football and would consider the right offer.

He's also opened up about issues off the field for the Reds...

The man who enjoyed incredible success to bring Warrenpoint Town into the top flight has also said some clubs need a change of mindset to compete with the top teams...

Cliftonville host Glenavon on Saturday with Michael Press as interim manager.

Gray has wished him well in the job.
