Armagh midfielder Aaron Findon won’t face disciplinary action for pushing the Donegal team doctor to the ground in last Saturday’s All-Ireland quarter-final.

Findon shoved Letterkenny-based surgeon Kevin Moran during an altercation after Moran had come on to the field to treat Donegal’s Karl Lacey, who himself had been caught in a headlock by the powerfully built midfielder.

Referee Joe McQuillan showed Findon a yellow card but it was unclear at the time if it was for his involvement with the doctor or the former Footballer of the Year.

Any physical interference by a player with an opposing mentor is deemed a Category Four offence which is punishable by a red card and subsequent two-match ban.

But the GAA’s Central Competitions Control Committee have reviewed the referee’s report and decided that the incident can’t be revisited because McQuillan already dealt with it.

Armagh manager Paul Grimley will also  escape any disciplinary action for his clash with Donegal’s Eamonn McGee in a separate altercation which erupted at the same time at the other end of the field.

Findon (left) contacted the Donegal camp on Sunday to convey his apologies for what had happened. Mr Moran has accepted the apology and stressed yesterday that he did not want any sanctions imposed against the player.
