Championship football player Gary Deegan is under investigation after posting a pro-IRA slogan on Twitter.

Coventry City FC launched the probe after the midfielder sparked outrage by posting “Up the IRA” on Saturday.

Dubliner Deegan publicly made the comments to his Scottish-born teammate James McPake who has been called up for international duty by Northern Ireland.

Though he quickly apologised, some fans said he was a “disgrace”, according to the Irish Daily Star.
