Steve Staunton gets one match ban

When Steve 'Stan' Staunton isn't avoiding a shooting, then he's shooting his mouth off on the touchline.

Staunton was banished to the stands of the Gottlieb-Daimler Stadium by referee Luis Medina Cantalejo for constantly whinging and whining about his decisions in the Eire/Germany match. The former Liverpool and Coventry player will not be in the dugout for the Republic's next match against Cyprus on 7 October. "I'll still be at the match" he said ominously... The referee made the decision after Staunton had kicked a water bottle in frustration. Handbags anyone?
