A RELATIVE of UVF commander Winkie Irvine has been ordered to leave Belfast's Shankill Road by the terror gang after being accused of a vicious assault on a teenager.
Raymond 'Rainbow' Carlisle is understood to be hiding out in the Divis area of west Belfast with a female friend after being told he is no longer welcome in the loyalist heartland.
The mother of his alleged victim went public last week, accusing him of a sickening attack on her son.
She posted images of his wounds, including a fractured nose and hand, head cuts and a swollen jaw, online.
Carlisle denies being involved in the assault, but that was not enough to prevent the UVF from ordering him off the Shankill despite his family connections to senior figures in the organisation.

Carlisle's mum Alberta is Irvine's sister. Alberta's first husband was Brian Robinson, the UVF assassin shot dead by undercover soldiers in 1989 seconds after murdering innocent Catholic Paddy McKenna.
Writing on social media, the teenage assault victim's mum described how her family was living in fear.
"This is what Raymond Carlisle, a 27-year-old man, did... I know (my son) is no angel, but in this situation he was," she said.
"(He) has a broken nose, fractured hand, head wounds that have led to concussion and a jaw so sore he cannot eat and it hurts to chew."
The Facebook post led to almost 200 comments of support and was shared more than 1,000 times, with other Shankill residents telling how they too had been tortured by Carlisle.
Because of his family's UVF connections Carlisle, who has a significant criminal record, has been given a bye-ball by the terror gang, but the latest claims seem to have been the final straw.
A UVF source told us: "The UVF cannot be seen to protect Rainbow after this. He has been ordered off the (Shankill) road and told not to come back. It doesn't matter who he is related to, he is finished."
In 2014 Carlisle was famously accused by a judge of being "up to no good" when he was filmed carrying a suspected petrol bomb during a riot.
He was fined and bound over to keep the peace when it could not be proven beyond reasonable doubt that he had a firebomb in his possession.
Judge Amanda Brady said: "Having watched the CCTV footage, it's clear that the defendant was up to no good that particular night.
"It clearly shows him holding something aloft. It shows him running up the steps and it shows him before that discarding what turns out to be a balaclava and pair of gloves."
Two years ago Carlisle was at the centre of a violent love triangle row between two girlfriends that led to one, Samantha Goldring, being jailed for four years for assaulting her rival with a hammer and leaving the woman blind in one eye.
