  • Kyle Lafferty can’t play against Hamilton on Sunday

Kyle Lafferty will miss this weekend's clash with Hamilton.

Northern Ireland have blocked Kyle Lafferty playing for Rangers after the striker pulled out of the Nations League games against Austria and Bosnia.

But they did not succeed and manager Steven Gerrard will now have to send out his side without the frontman.

The Irish FA have invoked Fifa's five-day rule, which will prevent Kyle Lafferty playing for Rangers against Hamilton on Sunday.

"Talks have been held among all parties and Rangers understands the position of the Irish FA", the Ibrox club said.

The Rangers striker was the main talking point of last weekend's global window, even though he wasn't in Northern Ireland's squad.

"Kyle did not comply fully with global protocol but remains available for worldwide selection".

Lafferty called O'Neill at midnight the night before he was due to meet up with the national team for their games against Austria and Bosnia-Herzegovina, and an angry O'Neill indicated that he would pursue the matter.

While Lafferty blamed the move on a long-standing Achilles complaint, O'Neill was left furious.

Barry Ferguson thinks that Kyle Lafferty must speak to Northern Ireland and Rangers in an effort to mend the situation which has resulted in him being unavailable for the Gers' trip to Hamilton on Sunday.

This law has to be requested by the aggrieved global team (IFA), and Federation Internationale de Football Association will then back them up and inform the club involved (in this case Rangers) regarding this ruling.

FIFA's "five-day" rule prevents players from representing their clubs for five days after an worldwide break, if requested by the nation's governing body, and he will now miss the game at the Superseal Stadium, live on Sky Sports.
