McShea, who played in Donegal’s Ulster title-winning side in 1972, says the action taken by manager Jim McGuinness over comments Cassidy made in a book was over the top.
“I think the action taken by Jim was a little extreme,” said the former county defender.
“Kevin was probably a little naive in his comments but I don’t think they should have led to him being discarded.”
It’s the latest comment in a row that just won’t go away.
Last week Cassidy sent a message on Twitter which appeared to be a dig at county captain Michael Murphy after he had spoke out to defend McGuinness.
