Northern Ireland international Josh Magennis is not a Euro 2016 injury concern for international manager Michael O'Neill after leaving Kilmarnock's victory over Falkirk in the Premiership play-off match yesterday.

Killie boss Lee Clark, who watched his side win 4-0 to register a 4-1 scoreline on aggregate to preserve their top flight status for another year, revealed striker Magennis went off with fatigue rather than a recurrence of a hamstring injury.

Magennis is joining up with the Northern Ireland squad today in Dublin for a pre-Euro 2016 camp before a friendly against Belarus at Windsor Park on Friday night.

Yesterday Greg Kiltie scored twice to give Killie an emphatic victory.

Kiltie and Miles Addison turned the Premiership play-off final on its head inside eight minutes at Rugby Park and Killie had the game wrapped up by the 65th minute as Kiltie and Kris Boyd scored in quick succession.

Falkirk had taken a 1-0 advantage in first-leg stoppage time following a surprise win last Thursday, but it was gone inside three minutes yesterday.
