Coventry have suspended midfielder Gary Deegan for two weeks as they investigate a comment made about the IRA on Twitter.

Deegan, who joined Coventry from League of Ireland side Bohemians in 2010, made the remark in a conversation with team-mate James McPake.

A statement from the club said: "Coventry City confirm that Gary Deegan has been suspended from training for a period of two weeks whilst further investigations take place into comments on Twitter social networking site.

"Neither the player nor the club will be making any further statement whilst internal investigations are on-going."
