PERTH GLORY HAVE revealed Andy Keogh’s punishment for getting arrested outside a nightclub in Adelaide on Sunday night and while he won’t miss any games, his bank balance will take a hit.

The West Australian is reporting that Keogh will forfeit half a week’s wages due to the incident as well as any match fees. However the club decided that his transgression wasn’t serious enough to warrant any suspension.

“We have conducted a thorough investigation, and moved swiftly and decisively in sanctioning both players in applying the maximum permissible financial sanctions available to us” Perth chief executive Jason Brewer said in a statement.

“Both players have acknowledged their behaviour did not meet the Club’s high standards, and both have accepted the sanctions imposed on them by the Club” he added.

Keogh, who has scored nine goals in 17 games for his top-of-the-table team, also apologised for his actions.

“I would like to sincerely apologise to our fans and sponsors, to our playing group and club executive for my poor judgement and behaviour,” Keogh said.

“I realise my actions have embarrassed the Club and I deeply regret the events that transpired in Adelaide.”
