An Irish footballer has been banned from every racecourse in Britain

That's what you get for horsing around...

He’ll have to find somewhere else to urinate in a glass.

Samir Carruthers has been banned from every racecourse in Britain by the British Horseracing Authority.

The MK Dons midfielder, and former Republic of Ireland U21 international, was photographed urinating into a pint glass, and emptying the contents of the glass from the balcony of a private box at the Cheltenham Festival back in March.

James Collins, a fellow former Ireland underage international, then on-loan at Northampton Town, but currently with Crawley Town, has also been banned.

Carruthers can appeal the ban after a year, Collins can appeal his ban after two years, while Jessica Hayes and Katie Salmon, who were photographed exposing their breasts on the day, can appeal their ban after three years.

Carruthers apologised for the incident at the time, and was fined two weeks wages by the League One club.
