Former Ireland International Banned For Feigning Injury

Former Ireland International Banned For Feigning Injury

Former Ireland international Darren O'Dea has been banned for two matches after feigning injury in a match between Dundee and Aberdeen on Stephen's Day.

The 31-year-old was involved in a tussle with Livingston striker Jack Hamilton during the game, and simulated that he had been hit in the face, before going down clutching his head.

Hamilton received a straight red card as a result of the incident, but is now available to play after being cleared by Scottish FA of any wrongdoing.

Dundee defender O'Dea on the other hand, will serve a two match ban for his histrionics, and has apologised for his actions in the wake of the decision:

Dundee will not contest the ban handed down to their player, who will miss his side's next two games with Hearts and Motherwell.
