Armagh manager Kieran McGeeney has refuted reports of him having a falling out with Rian O’Neill.

The star forward’s absence was sorely felt as the Orchard County were relegated to Division 2 of the Allianz Football League following a 0-16 to 0-18 defeat to neighbours Tyrone in Omagh.

"Needless to say, we haven't been in a boxing match or done anything to each other,” ‘Geezer’ joked when he spoke to RTÉ Radio 1's Sunday Sport.

"There's five of us that have a shiner in there so we thought that might add to the story.

"He took a small nick on the leg on Tuesday evening. So the rumour mill was going before he got it. So maybe it was a case of talking our way into history.

"He seems to be okay. But he's a big fella, he's a big lad, big muscles. He can still run but it's something you have to be cautious of.”
