Lyle Taylor admits he wants to avoid ever watching Hibernian’s semi-final comeback to defeat Falkirk.
But the Bairns hitman is sure the rest of Scottish football will not be as keen to forget the seven goal thriller at Hampden stadium.
Taylor played the full 120 minutes as Gary Holt’s team surrendered a three goal half time lead to lose 4-3 to Hibs.
The striker could have salvaged a penalty shoot-out in the dying moments of extra time but saw a close range shot smothered by Ben Williams.
The Falkirk striker, who is up for the First Division player of the year award, is trying to put the game to the back of his mind but confessed it was difficult to forget the thrilling match.
Taylor said: “I still haven’t watched it and I won’t watch it. It is still in the back of everybody’s minds.
“But that’s football and you can’t play in a game that is that good for the spectator and expect nobody to talk about it.
“It will be one that even next season people will be talking about.
“It’s a learning curve and I don’t think that will happen again to us as a team.”
