Keegan clear to play in semi-final
29 Aug 2014 09:09
Mayo defender Lee Keegan has been cleared to play in Saturday's All-Ireland football semi-final replay with Kerry following a hearing at the Central Hearings Committee.
-
The two-time All Star was sent off by referee David Coldrick in the 33rd minute after appearing to kick out in the direction of Johnny Buckley.
-
Coldrick reported the player for "kicking with minimal force" but Mayo were able to demonstrate through video evidence that the kick had not connected and therefore Keegan should have been reported for "attempting to kick with minimal force".
-
There is sure to be controversy over this decision, as the penalties for both kicking and attempting to kick are the same under Rule 7.2 (b) Category III (iii) and it was expected the player would miss tomorrow's match.
-
Mayo manager James Horan had delayed announcing his team pending the hearing and will reveal his line-up on Friday.
