Football Talk: Joker Cummings, Cascarino swipe at Celtic

Scotland's friendly against the Netherlands on Thursday might not be a blockbuster affair but Jason Cummings plans to bring a bit of Hollywood to the occasion if he finds the net.

The Nottingham Forest forward has revealed he will follow in the footsteps of Cesar Romero, Jack Nicholson and Heath Ledger with a Joker-themed celebration if he scores. 

A handily-placed tattoo could transform the artist formerly known as Cumdog into the comic book baddie.

Cummings discussed his love of tattoos and his obsession with Grease, saying he might add the rest of the film's cast after having Olivia Newton-John inked on his arm. Tell me more, tell me more...

Kenny McLean is hoping Cummings is the player cast as a villain at Pittodrie. He's concerned Ryan Jack might be a target for the boo boys after making the switch from Aberdeen to Rangers in the summer.

Malky Mackay will be in charge for the friendly as the Scottish FA look for their next manager but the governing body can scratch David Moyes' name off the list. 

The former Sunderland and Real Sociedad boss has been named as Slaven Bilic's replacement at West Ham but there are reports he wasn't first choice to the job. Or second choice. Or third.

Elsewhere, Celtic legend Tony Cascarino, who scored four goals for the club in the 1991-92 season, has said  there's no value in the club breaking a British record that's held for 100 years. 

Isma Goncalves has said Hearts' season starts now, giving the rest of the league a 13-game start and Tommy Wright has been made the bookies' favourite to take over at Dundee United.
