Gary Sice’s return to the Galway senior football squad at 36 years of age is the right decision, according to former team mate Barry Cullinane.

Sice and Cullinane won an All-Ireland U21FC title together back in 2005 before graduating to the senior ranks together.

Speaking to RTE Sport, Cullinane said that Padraic Joyce bringing in the veteran Corofin forward at this stage “will do no harm”.

"Gary has three All-Ireland club medals since he last played so you can't say he’s been sitting at home, looking at the television for the past four years," Cullinane states.

"I don’t think anyone can question the decision.

"There is no guarantee that it will do any good but there is certainly a guarantee it will do no harm.

"I think Gary coming back – just like Michael Meehan did some years ago – will show lads how to prepare properly and show what is expected of them."
