Nottingham Forest's Jason Cummings told Judy Murray to 'stop flirting' with him after a late night Twitter exchange.

Murray - the mother of Hibernian-supporting tennis star, Andy - tagged the former Easter Road striker in a tweet in which she compared her slicked-back hairstyle to his.

Cummings - nicknamed 'Cumdog' - then replied, telling the 58-year-old her 'barnet' was 'looking fresh'.

But after Murray returned, saying she was 'doing my best to emulate' Cummings, the 22-year-old seemed to think she was coming on too strong.

"Stop flirting", he wrote.

But Murray clearly saw the funny side, sending a rolling-on-the-floor-laughing emoji in response.

Cummings scored 71 goals in 149 games for Hibs before his summer transfer to Nottingham Forest, which is said to have cost the Reds upwards of £1 million.

The Scotland Under-21 international has begun brightly at the City Ground, scoring three goals in his first five outings for his new employers.

All three of his goals so far have come in the League Cup, although only a last-ditch clearance from Sheffield Wednesday's Tom Lees prevented Cummings from marking his first Championship start with another at the weekend.

What do you make of Cummings' start at Nottingham Forest?
