Hibs boss Nick Montgomery has issued an update on Lewis Miller and his injury. Quizzed whether Miller may miss out on the international window with Australia, Montgomery said: "I don’t know, it’s nothing bad, it’s just a tightness of the muscle.

"He tightened up a bit and Lewis did the right thing by coming off. Maybe he will be okay after the international break, I think he should be. I don’t think it would help him going away now, sitting on a plane if he’s not going to play."

Rangers star tipped to quit

A Rangers star is already reportedly contemplating an exit from Ibrox. According to Football Insider, reliable goalkeeper Jack Butland is hoping to depart Scotland for a return to England.

The report claims Butland has 'not ruled out' returning to the Premier League this summer having missed out on an England call-up this time around. The former Crystal Palace and Stoke City keeper has been in excellent form this season, and he may yet have a shot at making the Euro 2024 squad. Whether he does or not, he may attract interest from down South this summer, still only 31 years of age.
