Cummings leaves; Armstrong reflects

Jason Cummings hoists the Cup

Hibs striker Jason Cummings will leave Easter Road for English Championship side Nottingham Forest in deal worth more £1 million.

Cummings  has been the club’s top scorer in each of the last three seasons, and will join former Rangers manager Mark Warburton.

Hibs rejected a seven-figure offer for the player from Peterborough last summer.

Head coach Neil Lennon will look to add to his attack after the departure of James Keatings and Grant Holt.

Armstrong: ‘I should have shelled it into row Z’

Celtic’s Stuart Armstrong admitted his error led to England’s equaliser at Hampden on Saturday.

“You make decisions in games,” he said. “”t was really late on and, honestly, tiredness comes into play. I’ve seen Griff make a run and it was a poor pass.

“I should probably just have shelled it into row Z. A number of things have to happen for a goal to be conceded but I probably should have just cleared the ball.

“”ou can never tell what phase of play is going to lead to what. It’s just one of those things. When I saw the ball hit the net, my feelings were honestly just total disappointment. We were so close to three points. To end up with just one point, it’s just hard to take.

“The emotions of the game, being 1-0 down and then Griff hitting two unbelievable goals to get us back in the lead with so little time remaining – it’s hard to know what to say. To concede that second goal was disappointing, to say the least.”
