"I'll definitely not hold anything against him"

Frank Burns says none of the Tyrone footballers would have a problem with Cathal McShane if he switches to the AFL.

All Star attacker McShane is currently on trial at Adelaide Crows with a view to joining the Aussie Rules club if offered a contract. This would rule him out of playing for the Red Hands for the foreseeable future at least.

“Cathal will be a massive miss to us, but we’re just getting on with it,” Burns told The Irish News.

“There’s no final decision made yet. But fair play to him, all his hard work – he’s a serious athlete. It would be hard to turn down an opportunity like that, getting paid to do what you love, so I’ll definitely not hold anything against him for it and none of the lads do.

“But there’s nothing set in stone yet, we’re not 100 per cent sure if he’s gone yet.”
