LONDON football manager Paul Coggins has called on the media to respect the privacy of Cathal McCarron and his family after a pornographic video involving the county footballer surfaced online.
“My wish is that Cathal and his family are given space and time to be together. I have no further comment to make after that,” Coggins said.
An explicit video involving MCarron, 25, was widely shared on social media sites yesterday.
Last October it emerged that the former Tyrone star had serious gambling issues. His move to London in the autumn had offered a fresh start.
McCarron has been a regular in the Exiles side this season.
The defender was left unable to speak or move temporarily during last month’s match away to Waterford, but he recovered and was set to play a prominent role in London championship campaign this summer.
It is uncertain whether McCarron will now line out for the Exiles at Ruislip on Sunday against Leitrim or if he will remain involved with the panel for the remainder of the 2014 season.
