DANNY Haynes will today face the wrath of boss Jim Magilton after a petulant outburst in Belfast last night.

Haynes came very close to being sent home in disgrace after the referee in Town's 4-1 win at Donegal Celtic effectively sent him off.

Magilton replaced Haynes with Chris Casement at the official's suggestion after the Town striker twice lashed out at Celtic's Sean Armstrong.

The Town boss, taking his team to heart of west Belfast, was furious with Haynes who he felt had let everyone down and wanted to wait until this morning to calm down before dealing with the miscreant.

He said: “Danny lost his head and that is totally unacceptable. I don't care what level you are at it is not on. He showed total disrespect not just to us, but the lad involved and the referee, who did very well, and I won't stand for that.”
