Kyle Lafferty has been charged by the SFA over the social media clip that forced him out of the Northern Ireland international squad.

Kilmarnock have ordered an enquiry but a week later have still to comment on the actions of the veteran striker.

It is unusual for the SFA to get involved in incidents well away from matches but now Lafferty could be facing a 10 match ban with the hearing set for October 20.

This afternoon the SFA served Notice:

    The governing bodies won’t get a better chance to grow a pair and make an example of the sicktarian Bigot ,known as Kyle Lafferty . A10 match ban won’t cut it ! Make an example of this racist clown once and for all ! A6 month ban without wages will fix his wagon ! I’ll bet you any other potential loudmouths like Lafferty ,will bite their tongues .
