Baraclough's Northern Ireland departure: As it happened

Ian Baraclough was appointed as Northern Ireland manager just over two years ago, taking over Stoke-bound Michael O'Neill.

Success, however, did not follow for Baraclough, who guided Northern Ireland to just four wins in 22 competitive games during his time as manager.

With Northern Ireland out of action until March, the Irish FA have opted to make a change with Baraclough departing the setup with immediate effect.
