Northern Ireland boss Michael O'Neill held on suspicion of drink driving

Michael O'Neill has been Northern Ireland manager since 2011.

Northern Ireland manager Michael O'Neill has been arrested on suspicion of drink driving.

He was stopped by police on the outskirts of Edinburgh on Sunday, the Scottish Sun said.

A statement from the Irish Football Association (IFA) said it was "aware of an alleged drink-driving incident involving Michael O'Neill.

"As it is a police matter, the Association will be making no further comment."

A Police Scotland spokesman said: "Police in Edinburgh arrested and charged a 48-year-old man in connection with drink driving eastbound on the A720 around 12.55 a.m. on Sunday Sept. 10.

"He is due to appear at Edinburgh Sheriff Court on Oct. 10."

O'Neill, who lives in the Scottish capital, is due to lead Northern Ireland against Norway in Oslo in their final World Cup qualifier two days before that court date.

Northern Ireland's current boss assumed the post five years ago and has turned around the country's fortunes, leading them to the knockout stages of Euro 2016 in their first major tournament in 30 years.

World Cup qualification victories over San Marino and Czech Republic earlier this month extended the nation's record-winning streak to five successive victories, and they look set to clinch one of the playoff berths to give themselves a chance to reach their fourth World Cup finals next summer.

When the FIFA rankings are released later this week, Northern Ireland are projected to be in the top 20 for the first time in their history having sunk as low as 129th three games into O'Neill's reign.

O'Neill, who has previously managed Brechin City and Shamrock Rovers, signed a new deal with the IFA last year and is under contract until 2020.
