Linfield boss Healy handed seven-match touchline ban

David Healy has had to watch Linfield games from the stand on two occasions already this season

Linfield manager David Healy has received a seven-match touchline ban after being sent to the stands for the third time this season last weekend.

A manager’s dismissal incurs an automatic one-match ban but the IFA have increased it to seven games as it is Healy’s third offence this season.

Northern Ireland’s record goal-scorer was ordered from the dugout late in last weekend’s draw against Portadown.

Linfield plan to appeal against the additional six games in the ban.

Healy was sent from his touchline to the stands late on for arguing with the match officials in a game which saw Josh Carson’s late goal earning the Blues a draw against the Irish Premiership’s bottom-placed club.
