Glenswilly manager David McDaid has slammed the Donegal County Board for their treatment of their star player.

Murphy was forced to play the Donegal county final less than 24 hours after captaining Ireland to victory in the first International Rules Test against Australia at Breffni Park.

Incredibly, Murphy was the man-of-the-match in Glenswillly's second Donegal title triumph in three years but McDaid believes he should never have been put in that position.

"The build up to the two games was hard on Michael," McDaid told the Donegal Democrat.

"He was under immense pressure and it was a very difficult situation. It wasn't very fair on Michael.

"Michael has done a lot for Donegal football. We asked to change the game to accommodate him and for them not to after all he has done for this county is disrespectful."
