    I think they can justifiably sack him given he is club captain. There be some clause of extreme action resulting in evacuandam contractus. But it looks at this stage they are not going to do that. And Richard can count himself a very lucky boy. Perhaps they will look to terminate his contract and pay him off, x amounts of months.

It's a football club where the club captain does not have extra contractual burdens, if the club captain does not meet the standards of being club captain, then the role is given to somebody else.

    Pretty sure if they do sack him, without any criminal charges being applied, they'll be sued for wrongful dismissal.

    If I was on the board of Derby County Id be sending Keogh on a drink awareness course and then offering him a player/coach role when he returns.

    Good PR for the club and protecting the player as well. He strikes me as someone whod be a good defensive coach in the future and is obviously popular around the place.

    Perhaps a bit too social with the younger players !

    If an employer tries to sack somebody for being injured as a passenger in a car, the lawyers will have a field day.

    I suspect he may have been unconscious through drink at the time!

    Which is kind of double edged sword responsibility wise.

    Interestingly, Lawrence starts and Bennett on the bench today for Derby. No chance they can justify trying to scrap Keoghs contract now. They will just allow it run out in summer Id imagine, Keogh may pick up another club next year youd never know

    I wouldn't be sure about that at all. Why would criminal charges be a necessity?

    His contract will almost certainly have a clause about not engaging in behaviour that would tarnish the club's image, and, depending on the wording of that clause, it's not hard to imagine Derby deciding he has done that.
