“When I heard the Dubs were breaking the rules, I was stunned. I was shocked, I was amazed,” he said.

“With the Dubs, everything is managed. It’s all about protecting the brand. It’s all about controlling the narrative. No-one knows what is happening inside of the camp.

“It’s a bit like the brightest boy in the class suddenly being caught cheating, or you suddenly realise that the local parish priest has a wife and family in the next county.

“You look up to the Dubs as these are your role models.”

Strong words from the Kerry man, would you agree with once one of the best footballers to play the game?
