Mayo defender Lee Keegan has been cleared to play in Saturday's All-Ireland football semi-final replay with Kerry following a hearing of 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".

Manager James Horan has named an unchanged side for the clash
