Bit of light relief could leave exposed players facing early bath

Published 02/09/2013 | 05:00

THERE have been some bizarre sendings off in the Airtricity League this year but it's possible that the best is yet to come. Here's the text of a directive sent out by the league office to clubs on Friday evening:

"We have been advised by the referee representatives that there have been a number of instances this season where players (including substitutes) have been found to be urinating in the open rather than availing of the toilet facilities," read the statement.

"Please note that referees have been instructed to issue a red card and/or removal from the technical area of any player, substitute or member of the technical staff found to be offending in this manner."

This raises many questions, with the lack of specifics a disappointment.

It's unclear where the supposed indiscretions have occurred, but in a year where referees have been accused of taking the p*ss, it appears that miscreant players have literally responded by upping the ante.

You've got to love the League of Ireland.
