Kevin Nisbet: Explanation given as striker left out of Hibs team to face Dundee amid Celtic transfer talk

Hibs striker Kevin Nisbet has been left out of the squad for today’s lunchtime clash with Dundee.

Hibs have clarified Kevin Nisbets omission from this afternoon’s squad.

The striker - linked with Celtic yesterday - is unwell

As soon as I spoke to my wife, spoke to the club it was great it’s where we want to be. This club has given me everything and has got me international status too. It’s great.

Martin Boyle, on Sky Sports

Amidst all the Kevin Nisbet shock omission it may have been overlooked but new signing James Scott makes his debut for the Hibees today.

Paul Hanlon also misses out, as does Joe Newell.

He’s been unwell this week and we knew a couple days ago he was going to be unable to play today, and it is a blow because he has been in good form not just in terms of goals but his overall play has been excellent. It’s a blow to be without him as it is to be without Joe Newell and Paul Hanlon.

I was surprised when I saw [transfer speculation] yesterday because unless people at the club are not telling me things, which I don’t imagine is the case, it’s nonsense.
