Former Hibs favourite hit with ‘serious’ injury setback – Euro 2024 dream now likely over

Published

on

Former Hibernian striker Kevin Nisbet, once considered a strong contender for Scotland’s Euro 2024 squad, has suffered a significant setback due to a serious hamstring injury. Nisbet, who enjoyed successful spells with Hibs before moving to Millwall in the summer, had been hoping to regain his form and secure a place in the national team.

Nisbet’s time at Hibernian was marked by both success and injury struggles. Despite being the club’s top scorer in the league during his first season, he faced challenges with injuries, including an ACL problem that sidelined him for a considerable period in 2022. Nevertheless, Nisbet’s talent earned him international recognition, with three substitute appearances for Scotland at Euro 2020.

After his move to Millwall, Nisbet’s form began to improve, with recent weeks seeing him score four goals in five appearances. However, his hopes of making a late push for the Scotland squad have been dashed by a serious hamstring injury. Millwall manager Joe Edwards confirmed the severity of the injury, stating that Nisbet would be sidelined for an extended period, pending further evaluation from a specialist.

The timing of Nisbet’s injury is unfortunate for both Millwall and the player himself. Millwall currently sits in 16th place in the Championship, and Nisbet’s absence will pose a challenge as they aim to secure their position in the league. Additionally, Nisbet’s aspirations of representing Scotland at Euro 2024 have been dealt a significant blow, with no clear timeline for his return to action.
