Kyle Lafferty: Striker withdrawn from NI squad amid alleged sectarian remark investigation

By Amanda Caroline  •  September 24, 2022  •  17

Kyle Lafferty has been withdrawn from Northern Ireland's Nations League squad amid an investigation by his club into an alleged sectarian remark.

On Thursday, Kilmarnock said they were aware of footage "which appears to show a member of our playing staff using language of a sectarian nature".

The Irish FA said on Friday that it "notes an investigation has been launched into the video" by the club.

It said a "minor back problem" had also prevented Lafferty training this week.

Speaking later, Northern Ireland manager Ian Baraclough said that he had seen the video but refused to comment on its contents.

"There's an investigation going on with Kyle's club and it would be wrong of me to comment," added Baraclough, who added that the player had left the squad on Friday morning.

Asked about the 35-year-old's back issue, the Northern Ireland manager replied: "Yes he hasn't trained for the last few days and in the light of the situation, it was in the best interests of everybody."
