Lafferty banned for 2 weeks by Rangers

Rangers has handed Kyle Lafferty a two-week suspension for a

breach of club discipline, amid speculation of a fallout between

the striker and manager Ally McCoist.

Lafferty didn’t travel with the deposed Scottish champions for

its match at Hearts on Saturday, when Rangers won 3-0 to virtually

ensure a second-place finish despite being docked 10 points in

February for falling into administration – a form of bankruptcy


The Northern Ireland international’s ban adds to the problems of

the financially stricken Glasgow club, which was barred on Monday

from signing players for 12 months after it was found to have

breached five disciplinary rules as it fell into heavy debt.
