Sydney FC keeper sent home for drinking

Sydney FC goalkeeper Liam Reddy has been sent home from New Zealand for being affected by alcohol on the team's flight to Wellington ahead of Friday night's A-League elimination final.

A club official confirmed the back-up goalkeeper had been sent home on Thursday after it become apparent on Wednesday night's flight he had been drinking alcohol.

Reddy will be served a breach notice under the A-League disciplinary procedure and is unlikely to figure in the rest of the finals series.

Reddy was expected to be on the bench for the do-or-die clash against the Phoenix at Westpac Stadium.

The former Brisbane and Wellington 'keeper has been kept out of the starting line-up by Ivan Necevski after being dropped following Sydney's 5-2 loss to Newcastle early last month.

Reddy, 30, is in the second season of a three-year deal with the Sky Blues.

His place on the bench will likely be filled by youth team goalkeeper Ryan Norval, who flew to Wellington on Thursday morning.

The club is expected to issue a statement later on Thursday.
