GER BRENNAN HAS been ruled out of Dublin’s All-Ireland semi-final.

The centre-back has suffered a recurrence of an ankle injury and manager Jim Gavin confirmed that he will not feature in Sunday’s showdown with Ulster champions Donegal.

Brennan had ankle surgery in the spring following St Vincent’s run to the All-Ireland club title and has not featured at all for the Dubs this season.

Gavin refused to speculate on a recovery timetable beyond Sunday’s game.

“[Ger] had a little bit of a setback last week. It won’t be too long before he’s back in training again.

He added: “He just irritated his ankle again unfortunately. He was back kicking football with us, he was back playing and he irritated it again so it has been on ice for the last couple of days.

“We’re just taking one game at a time. We’re not looking beyond the challenge we have on Sunday and unfortunately he’s going to miss selection for that game.”
