CHARLIE Redmond has called on the GAA to take strong action against Lee Keegan after he appeared to throw a GPS unit at Dean Rock as he kicked the winning free in last Sunday’s All-Ireland SFC final.

He also branded the reigning Footballer of the Year’s action “a new low” for Gaelic football.

“For Lee Keegan to take the unit out of its brace and throw it at Dean Rock marks a new low,” the double All-Ireland winner stated.

“Lee Keegan let himself down and he let Mayo down doing what he did. The GAA needs to make an example of Keegan now.”

Rock’s free sailed over the bar, sealing Dublin’s third All-Ireland title in-a-row. But Redmond (below) was adamant that there would have been a greater outrage had the roles been reversed.

“What would have happened if it was a Dublin player who threw it at Cillian O’Connor?” he said. “Can you imagine the reaction in the media and GAA circles if it was Diarmuid Connolly?”
