Lafferty suspended by Rangers with summer departure next

Kyle Lafferty has been suspended by Rangers after having a bust-up with manager Ally McCoist.

The 24-year old striker has been banned by the club for two weeks and been told to stay away from the final two home games of the season.

It is believed that McCoist wanted Lafferty to be a substitute for last weekend's away match with Heart of Midlothian despite the former Burnley man being sidelined by a hernia problem which requires surgery.

Lafferty, who has a year left on his Ibrox contract, reportedly failed to show in Edinburgh on Friday and did not stay with the squad prior to the 3-0 victory at Tynecastle Stadium and his Rangers career now appears to be finished with sources telling SunSport he never wants to play under McCoist again.
