BBC Sport - Mickey Harte says Tiernan McCann knows he made mistake

Harte says McCann knows he made mistake

Tyrone boss Mickey Harte says Tiernan McCann accepts he "made a mistake" after his play-acting contributed to the red carding of Monaghan's Darren Hughes in Saturday's All-Ireland quarter-final.

McCann has come in for strong criticism for collapsing to the Croke Park turf after Hughes gently ruffled his hair.

Harte told BBC Sport Northern Ireland that McCann would "wish to have responded differently".

However, Harte also defended McCann, describing him as a "fine young man".
