Kieran McGeeney criticised referee Cormac Reilly after Armagh had to settle for a share of the spoils against Clare yesterday.

The Orchard County raised questions over the validity of both Clare goals and also felt Jamie Clarke was harshly red-carded in the first half. 

"When you look at the video again, they [Clare] definitely got the rub of the green," he told RTÉ. 

"There's a ball that goes in [to the net from a fist pass] that nobody touched. There's a ball that [the ref says] crosses the line, that doesn't look to have crossed it.

"And a man [Clarke] got sent off for what looks like for what looks like a man just holding his face and going down. 

"It is a point dropped. There were three big decisions which, looking at the video, they got wrong."
