WATCH: Ex-League Of Ireland Defender Ken Oman Banned For Six Weeks For Vicious Elbow

Ken Oman, a League of Ireland winning centre-back with both Bohemians and Shamrock Rovers, is currently playing in the NIFL with Portadown.

The club were taking on their old rivals Cliftonville, who've won back to back Irish League titles in recent years. Cliftonville won the match 1-0.

Portadown's points tally remains at -1 points after 20 league games. Yes, they are struggling. They'd boast a whopping 11 points had they not been deducted 12 points before the season started.


Their cause was helped at the weekend by the referee's inability to see Ken Oman's elbow to the face of Cliftonville substitute Caoimhin Bonner.

Bonner lost two teeth in the incident.

The disciplinary committee have stepped in to punish Oman on the basis of the video evidence. The sanction - a 6 week ban and a £100 fine.

The Committee considered the correspondence together with the video footage and decided to charge Ken Oman with a breach of Article 18.11 of the Disciplinary Code (assault or battery of an opponent) and sanction him with a 6 match ban and £100 fine on the club.
