MK Dons midfielder and former Ireland underage international Samir Carruthers is in hot water for his alleged behaviour on the opening day of Cheltenham Festival.

Carruthers was pictured urinating into a cup at the festival. The 22-year-old then seems to throw the cup over a balcony down into the crowd.

The midfielder's behaviour has featured on most of the newspapers on Wednesday morning.

Carruthers has played for both the Ireland Under-19 and Under-21 teams since 2011. The MK Dons midfielder has featured heavily for The Championship side this season as they look to survive in the English second-tier after last season's promotion.

Cheltenham Racecourse confirmed on Wednesday morning that the booking made by the company for facilities Carruthers was using has been cancelled.
