Lafferty ‘certainly hasn’t helped his international future’ – O’Neill

Northern Ireland manager Michael O’Neill says Kyle Lafferty cited an Achilles injury when he withdrew from the squad for the Nations League games against Austria and Bosnia-Herzegovina.

The Northern Ireland boss said on Tuesday night that the Rangers striker had “ruled himself out” of the games.

O’Neill was informed of Lafferty’s withdrawal late on Sunday evening.

“Kyle had an Achilles problem, we knew he had an Achilles problem in September,” said O’Neill in Vienna.

“He felt he would be better served not coming and being part of the squad for these two games – albeit he’s been part of the Rangers squad all season.”

Northern Ireland face Austria in Vienna on Friday evening before taking on the Bosnians in Sarajevo on Monday.
