GAA player gets 'advice' after failing steroid test
The Gaelic Players' Association have said they are "advising" the Monaghan footballer who failed a drugs test.
The player is believed to have tested positive for a steroid during a recent test and is currently under investigation by the Irish Sports Council's Anti-Doping unit.
The sportsman, who is in his 20s, is not currently a member of the Monaghan senior inter-county panel but has been on the fringes of the squad.
The GPA released a statement saying: "The GPA is currently advising a GAA player who has had an adverse finding as a result of an out-of-competition drug test in February of this year.
"The player in question is a trial panellist and whilst he is not a member of the GPA, the Association is nonetheless providing him with personal and professional support."
