Tyrone selector Gavin Devlin is facing a proposed ban after members of the GAA's Central Competitions Controls Committee reviewed video evidence of the altercation at half-time in Sunday's Ulster Championship clash with Donegal in Ballybofey.

Tyrone and Donegal are also understood to have been hit with proposed fines arising out of the incident as players and officials made their way off the field to exit through the narrow tunnel beneath the terrace at MacCumhaill Park which takes them to the dressing-rooms.

Both counties received communication yesterday.

The penalty for any minor physical interference with an opposing player is a minimum of eight weeks. Video evidence shows Devlin involved with Donegal player Eamonn McGee. It is understood that no Donegal or Tyrone players in action on the day have been cited for involvement.

Last year the Cavan and Armagh County Boards were fined ¤5,000 each when their players were involved in a pre-match melee as they lined up for the parade.
