Rice won the award for his performances for Ireland in 2018 but McCarthy - who is preparing for his second stint as national boss - would rather the award went to someone who appreciated it more or that it was scrapped all together.

Mick McCarthy has slammed the decision to name Declan Rice the FAI Young Player of the Year just weeks after he defected to play for England.



SportPesa are the official betting partner of The Football Association of Ireland.



The 20-year-old West Ham centre back was deemed the best young player by a panel of Soccer Writers’ Association of Ireland (SWAI) for his three senior appearances last year in friendly matches.

Speaking from the Aviva stadium as The FAI announced SportPesa as their new official betting partner, McCarthy said: "I wouldn’t have given it to him, would I heck.

I said that, if there is no one else then don’t give the award.” Another West Ham midfielder in the shape of Josh Cullen, who is on loan at Charlton Athletic this season, has been drafted into the senior squad for the first time after the Irish suffered a couple of injury blows.
