Dublin-born Jeff Hendrick has been capped 33 times by the Republic of Ireland

Republic of Ireland midfielder Jeff Hendrick has been found not guilty of violent disorder by a jury at the Circuit Criminal Court in Dublin.

The 25-year-old had pleaded not guilty to the alleged offence outside a nightclub in Dublin in October 2013.

Sean Gillane, defending Hendrick, said the incident "was just drunk men shouting at each other and not a crime".
