Dublin cornerback Philly McMahon has laughed off the incident which saw Mayo wing-back Lee Keegan appear to throw his GPS tracker at Dean Rock as he kicked the All-Ireland-winning point.

Images and video of Rock's 76th minute strike clearly show that Keegan attempted to put Rock off by flinging the object into Rock's eyeline as he struck the ball.

Despite Keegan's efforts and the pressure of the moment, McMahon's Ballymun Kickhams teammate dissected the uprights.

Asked about his thoughts on the incident by 98FM, McMahon joked: "The must have loads of money to be throwing GPSs away or else they're cheap ones because we wouldn't be throwing ours away. We know how much they're worth

"I wouldn't think too negatively about it, it what he's tried to do so his team could win the game, fortunately it didn't work and Dean kicked it over."
