Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp is set to punish players involved in a Christmas party organised behind his back last week and Robbie Keane's role as skipper could be under scrutiny.
Redknapp was furious to learn about reports of 16 of his squad travelling to Dublin days before he insisted they would not be allowed to celebrate excessively during the festive period.
The Spurs boss will wait until after this weekend's Barclays Premier League trip to Blackburn before deciding what action to take.
"It was wrong and it will be dealt with. Severely. It will be dealt with," Redknapp insisted.
"It's being dealt with internally and we'll keep it in-house. I will be dealing with it after the weekend. We've got a game to concentrate on - we'll sort the game out, then I'll sort them out. Believe you me, it will get sorted out.
"I'm not happy, I'd be lying if I said I was happy. I didn't know anything about the trip at all if I'm perfectly truthful but it's done now and will be dealt with on Monday morning."
Keane was said to have orchestrated the trip near to Dublin, so Redknapp is likely to take a dim view if that is the case.
Keane could find himself on the bench at Ewood Park as Peter Crouch and Jermain Defoe combined well during the defeat of Manchester City on Wednesday.
Redknapp has taken a strong anti-alcohol stance, particularly after Ledley King's arrest outside a London nightclub, and believes Christmas parties should not be on the agenda.
"They are my views on it. They are more trouble than they are worth and it happens at every football club unfortunately. Every club has had problems with it," said Redknapp.
