Rebels deny discipline breach rumours

Two player leave football panel

Cork football management have denied that a breach of discipline was the cause of two players departing the senior panel.

Reports had suggested that goalkeeper Ken O’Halloran and full-back Michael Shields were dismissed from Peader Healy's squad for a breach of discipline at a training camp in Portugal, but this has been strenuously denied by management.

“We’ve heard that thing come out,” senior selector Eoin O’Neill said.

“There was no breach of discipline in our training camp, absolutely not. Everybody was impeccable out there.

“The reason why those guys are back with their clubs a bit more was that for various reasons – whether injury or just not getting game time – they haven’t had much game time with us.

“Basically Ken played the first [league] game and another game, Michael played nothing for us really. He played a half against Roscommon, he’s been injured. Michael had an ongoing issue with his ankle and a slight back issue.

Cork have endured a difficult 2016 so far after being relegated to Division Two of the Allianz Football League

They are set to face the winners of Tipperary and Limerick in the Munster SF championship.
