Kyle Lafferty will be dropped from the Northern Ireland squad as Kilmarnock investigate a video showing him using alleged sectarian language, according to reports in Ireland.

Lafferty had been selected by Ian Baraclough and was named in the squad to face Kosovo and Greece, but came under serious scrutiny when a widely-shared clip emerged online.

Lafferty was seen preparing to pose for a photo with a man, but as the clip is being filmed the man is heard saying “up the Celts” and after stepping away Lafferty is then alleged to have used derogatory sectarian language.

Kilmarnock soon released a statement announcing an investigation into Lafferty's behaviour. And now, according to the Belfast Telegraph, he is set to be dropped by the squad that face Kosovo in Belfast tomorrow before travelling to Greece on Tuesday night.
