VIDEO: Eunan O'Kane discovers the craziest way to concede a penalty

It’s kinda like when Paolo di Canio caught the ball — except it’s completely different.

DERRY NATIVE EUNAN O’Kane conceded a bizarre penalty in Bournemouth’s defeat against Walsall — when he chipped the ball up into his own hands and caught it.

Bournemouth were trailing 2-1 on Saturday when O’Kane, who scored against Wigan in the FA Cup third round this month, thought he heard the referee whistle for a free-kick.

To try and get the game moving again, the Republic of Ireland U21 international flicked the ball up and caught it before realising that the whistle was all in his head.

Will Grigg scored the resulting penalty, killing off any chance of a comeback, and O’Kane took to Twitter later that evening to apologise to the fans.
