Waterford have complained to the FAI over the eligibility of Finn Harps defender Shane McEleney.

McEleney played in Harps win over Waterford on Monday night, a result which kept the Ballybofey side safe in the Premier Division but also meant Waterford missed out on a possible place in the Europa League qualifiers.

McEleney got a yellow card in Harps' defeat to St Pat's and should have served a one match ban but the moving of the final series of games also seen the moving of the suspension date which freed McEleney to play.
