Fulham ace Duff: I've never seen Celtic's McGeady dive

Fulham winger Damien Duff was shocked to learn of Celtic ace Aiden McGeady's dismissal for diving against Hibs. Duff said of his Republic of Ireland teammate: "Some of these incidents are blatantly obvious, but I saw the one with Aidy and I thought it was harsh on him.

"I've NEVER seen him dive.

"He skips by players but people nick at his heels and he's going to be off balance and fall over. It's harsh for him to get a red. Where do you stop?"

Duff added: "I don't think diving is a bigger problem than before. It's always been there.

"I think it's been highlighted more because of the coverage now.

"You are probably opening a can of worms. I could end up getting done as well, so I probably don't want it opened up!"
