Ipswich player denies wrongdoing
George O'Callaghan was upset about the sending off against Watford in the FA Cup 5th Round.
'The player came in on me and we ended up on the floor and I just flicked out at him to get him off, it was nothing, just a reaction to say 'get off' that happens time and time again in the game. If anything he caught me but the referee said he was sending me off for stamping. How could I stamp him if I'm on the floor?
'It was definitely nothing malicious and I feel it was really harsh. The TV people have looked at on the screen and they said it was harsh as well.
'But I feel I have let the players, the gaffer and the fans down because the end result is that I was sent-off. At the time we right on top and we could have gone on to reach the Quarter-Finals of the FA Cup and that would have been a massive boost to the Club.'
