Bohemians midfielder McGlynn ready to appeal over betting ban

Bohemians midfielder Gareth McGlynn will be launching an appeal after being hit with a two month ban for gambling on League of Ireland matches during his time with Derry City.

The severity of the punishment has enraged his manager Pat Fenlon and the players union [PFAI]. McGlynn will be unavailable from April 30 until June 29, after the FAI's Disciplinary Committee reached their verdict.

McGlynn was in breach of rule 100, which forbids a League of Ireland player from punting on any matches in the league. He placed five bets on fixtures not involving his then employers. All were losing bets.
