Ross Draper and Andrew Shinnie scored either side of a Leigh Griffiths goal to give the visitors the three points but Fenlon thinks his side can count themselves unlucky.

And the defeat leaves Hibs eighth in the table, with a trip to Celtic their only remaining fixture before the league splits in two.

"I don't think the result was fair," said Fenlon. "Maybe we didn't deserve to win but I certainly don't think we deserved to lose. I thought the work rate was tremendous.

"We had a great opportunity to get a home win and put some pressure on the teams around us, and I'm disappointed we haven't done that.

"We gave away two sloppy goals. The first one we didn't defend a straight ball and then with the second goal we defended the free-kick well, but didn't win the second ball. It's not rocket science.

"The desire not to concede sloppy goals is something we want to get into the team. We need to make teams work harder to score against us."

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
