Former Donegal star Brendan Devenney has responded to the criticism he has received from Eamon McGee.
McGee was seething over comments Devenney made regarding a potential meeting of Donegal and Dublin prior to Saturday’s match with Armagh.
McGee blasted the comments, saying it was ridiculous and disrespectful to both Armagh and Monaghan.
He also revealed that the players and management within the Donegal set-up were extremely disappointed by the commentary from former players prior to their All-Ireland quarter-final clash with Armagh.
McGee said, “It was ridiculous. It was so disrespectful to Armagh and Monaghan.
“Former players from Donegal who said it out during the week about a Donegal-Dublin semi-final was ludicrous and we were very disappointed in it.
“But, look, that was outside the circle and it’s only what goes on inside the circles that matters.
However Devenney responded to the criticism on Twitter, and clarified his position on the issue.
The former St Eunan’s man said he was specifically asked twice during the interview about the potential semi-final match-up.
Devenney tweeted, “I was asked about Donegal v Dublin twice, and twice I started my answer with this is very disrespectful to Armagh and Monaghan.Tags:
