Ratoath manager David Brady was involved in another confrontation on the sideline in his side's 0-11 to 0-9 win over Offaly champs Rhode.

The former Mayo midfielder was pictured being shoved Rhode player Anton Sullivan. Tensions between the two reached boiling point when a sideline ball was awarded close to Brady's technical area. Rhode players had to step in and try to separate the two.

There was even more drama after the final whistle as the Ratoath manager exchanged a few words with certain Rhode players and was again confronted.

Not His First Schemozzle

Recommended

According to reporters at the game, the victorious manager maintains that he is innocent. The 5-time Connacht champion cited - in classic Brady fashion - that the full-time confrontation was caused by someone thinking he did something when he did not.

Look it, I think someone actually thought I did something and I didn't - someone else did. But sure, give a dog a bad name anyway.

That was not Brady's first schemozzle on the sidelines. Just 3 weeks ago, the Mayo native was involved in a scuffle in the Meath county final. The confrontation between Brady and Summerhill manager Conor Gillespie led to Brady hitting the deck after a powerful shoulder by his opposite number.

The two managers were sent off for their actions. However, Brady's red card was later rescinded by the Meath county board. After the final whistle was blown, the two had got over their fight and shook hands. Speaking afterwards, Brady admitted that it wasn't his first shemozzle and praised his counterpart.

It's not the first time I've had a shemozzle with Meath men - I don't think I hit the ground as quick as last time.

But ah look, Conor is an absolute gent and he's done so much for that group. They were undefeated all year, they still haven't conceded a goal since May.

The former midfielder has also been involved in scuffles in his playing days. He was part of the Mayo team that had the infamous brawl against Meath in the All Ireland final in 1996.

Complete The Set

Ratoath's next opponents are Westmeath team The Downs in the semi finals of the Leinster club championship. Remarkably the club have already won the Leinster title in the Junior and Intermediate grades in 2004 and 2015. Ratoath and David Brady will be hoping they'll complete the set this year.
