Lafferty 'certainly hasn't helped his international future' - O'Neill

Northern Ireland manager Michael O'Neill says Kyle Lafferty's late withdrawal from the squad "certainly hasn't helped his international future".

Speaking before Friday's Nations League game against Austria in Vienna, O'Neill reiterated his unhappiness at the 11th-hour nature of Lafferty's decision.

The Northern Ireland manager said that the Rangers striker had cited an Achilles injury as the reason for his withdrawal.
