Kyle Lafferty subject of Kilmarnock probe over alleged use of sectarian language

Kilmarnock have launched an investigation after a video appeared to show striker Kyle Lafferty using sectarian language.

The video, which has appeared on social media, shows Lafferty reacting when a man posing for a photo with him says “Up the Celts”.

The 34-year-old former Rangers and Hearts striker is on international duty with Northern Ireland for their UEFA Nations League fixtures against Kosovo and Greece.
