Glenn Ryan’s post-match interview about referee could get him in trouble

Glenn Ryan

“This man is out of his depth.”

Kildare manager Glenn Ryan could find himself in hot water following his post match comments about referee Jerome Henry following his side’s defeat to Monaghan.

Kildare are now out of the championship as the Ulster side managed to win the match by a single point, and book their place in the quarter final stages.

In a thrilling finish to the game there were some questionable decisions that have irked Ryan who believes that David Gough should have been the man in the middle.

One instance in particular stands out as the game stretched over the allotted injury time, Sean Jones caught a pass, called for a mark, which the referee didn’t award, but the player in question then played on despite arguably over carrying it.

The play then continued and ended with a vital score from Monaghan’s Conor McCarthy, who had also scored the only goal of the game.

“Our job is to try and prepare the team and get them out on the pitch for the lads to try and do the best that they can. It’s other people’s jobs to make sure they get decisions right as to who officiates these games.

“Funny enough someone said to me this week that this man is out of his depth – he proved tonight that he was out of his depth.

“I can’t understand in a big game like that, having a top class official like David Gough doing the line, who was equally scratching his head on the line with me on occasions.

“But we had opportunities to win the game and we didn’t take them. Our lads battled and worked hard and that’s all you can ask of them.”
