Fresh Ireland row for Man Utd's Gibson

Northern Ireland have approached FIFA over Manchester United midfielder Darron Gibson's decision to commit to the Republic of Ireland.

IFA chief executive Howard Wells told the Irish Star: "There is nothing personal in all this.

"It is about establishing a point of principle and preventing the Republic from selecting players from Northern Ireland who are not eligible for them.

"It is just unfortunate that Darron Gibson has become the focus."
