Fianna Fáil TD Marc Mac Sharry has claimed that the decision to award the contract for Covid-19 testing on League of Ireland players to Advanced Medical Services "does not refelect well on the FAI".

One of the company's directors is the FAI's medical director Dr Alan Byrne.

A report in the Sunday Independent reveals that Dr Byrne did declare a conflict of interest to Irish football's governing body before the procurement procedure began.

MacSharry told the Independent that Dr Byrne is a "professional of good standing" and that the Advanced Medical Services are a "reputable company" but that the "texture of the deal" didn't look good.
