The Sunday Game panel has blasted Tyrone’s Tiernan McCann after a controversial incident in yesterday’s Ulster SFC semi-final against Donegal.
However with McMenamin grounded and swamped by Tyrone players, footage appeared to show McCann making contact with the face of the Donegal defender.
“That’s crossing the line,” former Dublin defender Ciaran Whelan said.
“You can’t put your hands in there.”
The Central Competitions Controls Committee (CCCC) can apply retrospective punishment if the referee has missed it during the course of the game. McCann was later withdrawn injured.
Tomas Ó Sé, the former Kerry defender, said: “He knew exactly what he was doing. The hand is going into it. It’s disgusting. It was horrible. There is no defending it.”
Valerie Mulcahy, the ex-Cork player, called the incident ‘despicable’.
