Police were called to the hotel where the Republic of Ireland team are staying ahead of a Euro 2016 qualifier, the Football Association of Ireland (FAI) has confirmed.

Assistant manager Roy Keane called gardai to the hotel in Portmarnock, Co Dublin, after an incident involving a member of the public, the FAI said.

In a statement the association criticised "inaccurate media reports" about the incident and added: "The manager Martin O'Neill and the FAI are fully aware of the circumstances surrounding this event, and the assistant manager (Keane) has their full support."

Ireland play Scotland at Glasgow's Celtic Park on Friday.
