Blackpool defender Crainey amazed by Premiership promotion

Blackpool defender Stephen Crainey admits he's in dreamland over their Premiership promotion.

The former Celtic stopper admits he is still coming to grips with the achievement.

Crainey told the Daily Record: "It was absolutely incredible, just a bit surreal to be honest. Blackpool - winning the play offs! Blackpool, in the Premier League.

"I'm looking forward to giving it a good go. I got a wee taste of it at Southampton but hopefully I get a better crack at it this time and can enjoy it.

"But this is vindication for all the hard work. I've always tried to just knuckle down and work hard and it has proved to be worth it by getting here with Blackpool."
