Offaly Gaelic football manager John Maughan has come for heavy criticism at a recent county board meeting.

Per the Midlands Tribune, Kilclonfert delegate Brendan Spillane was critical of Maughan after he allegedly told their player, Cathal Mangan, he was not to play in their club Division 4 Football League final against Rhode.

"It was not fair to him or the other players. He was told he would not be picked if he played” Spillane said.

County board chairman Tommy Byrne did stat he would deal with the issue with the manager and said they would try and resolve it come championship.
