Lyle leaving

Falkirk’s Lyle Taylor looks set to head to Rotherham after the Bairns prepare to accept a £200,000 bid.

Taylor brought in a lot of attention with his 29-goal effort, and the move will be a blow to Hibs boss Pat Fenlon, who had thought of him as a possible replacement for Leigh Griffiths. (Sun)

• Griffiths insists that he is completely focused on his career at Wolves, despite previous attempts to stay at Hibs.
