Ryan McHugh has a target on his back, according to his manager Declan Bonner. 

Speaking ahead of Sunday's Ulster SFC decider with Fermanagh, the Tir Chonaill boss highlighted the undue attention that the Kilcar flier has received in their games to date and says that officials should be doing more to protect his player.

"You can see the punishment that is dished out to the likes of Ryan," Bonner remarked to the Irish News.

"To me, he doesn't get enough protection, he gets targeted, any match that we have been in he's been targeted.

"Officials are there and they pick up a lot of stuff but for some reason or other they don't seem to pick up what's going on with the likes of Ryan.

"It has been there in all the games - he has been targeted, there's no doubt about it."
