  1. Hordan has made the move from Preston North End to Hibernian for an undisclosed fee. Hibernian manager Neil Lennon has said "He's one we've been keen on for a long time and it's a real coup to get him over the line, Daryl Hordan will give us a real threat going forward and some strength out wide. We had been looking to add in that area and I'm delighted with the options we now have. "He has power and pace and will hopefully give us another dimension to our play in the final third." Daryl Hordan Irish international has signed a three year deal with the club, hoping to make his first appearance on Sunday against St Johnstone. Hordan said "I am delighted to have made the move to Hibs, I've spoken to the manager and am excited for his plans for the season ahead." "Obviously the boys have started well in Europe and the league, they had a good season last year and the ambition is there to follow that up with another successful year. I'm ready to play and looking forward to trying to break into the team." The 26 year old has had four caps for his international side Ireland and since joining Preston North End in January 2017 he made 44 appearances, scoring four goals. Hordan helped his previous club Dundalk qualify for the Europa League group stages and win three league titles in a row.
  2. Former Celtic, Manchester United and Hibernian midfielder Liam Miller has died at the age of 36. Miller, who won 21 caps for the Republic of Ireland between 2004 and 2009, was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer last year and had since been undergoing treatment in the United States and Ireland. Miller made his professional debut for Celtic in 2000 after coming through the youth ranks at Parkhead and helped them win the Scottish Premiership title in 2004, subsequently moving to Manchester United. Spells followed at Sunderland, Queens Park Rangers, Hibs, Australian clubs Perth Glory, Brisbane Roar and Melbourne City, hometown club Cork City and, most recently, Wilmington. Celtic paid tribute to Miller, tweeting: "Everyone at #CelticFC is deeply saddened to hear of the passing of former midfielder Liam Miller. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends at this time. RIP Liam, YNWA." Man United wrote: "Manchester United is deeply saddened to learn of the tragic death of our former midfielder Liam Miller. We extend our condolences to his loved ones at this extremely difficult time." Sunderland put: "We are saddened to hear this evening that former #SAFC midfielder Liam Miller has passed away. Our thoughts are with his family and friends at this time." Hibernian wrote: "We are incredibly saddened to hear of the passing of former Hibernian midfielder Liam Miller. Our thoughts are with his family and friends at this time."
  3. Hibernian have signed midfielder Vykintas Slivka from Serie A champions Juventus on a three-year deal. The 22-year-old will become Neil Lennon's seventh summer signing for the returning Scottish Premiership side, subject to international clearance. Slivka, a Lithuania international, arrives at Easter Road for an undisclosed fee following five years at Juventus, where he did not make a first-team appearance for the Italian giants. "I am very happy to have signed for Hibernian," Slivka told reporters. "This is another step in my career and I am really excited to be joining the club. "The international matches against Scotland and England have given me a taste of the British style of football, and now I can't wait to get started. "I am looking forward to meeting the squad and getting ready for the new season."

  4. Hibernian have re-signed defender Steven Whittaker on a three-year deal following his release by Norwich City. The 33-year-old returns on a free transfer to Neil Lennon's side after a 10-year absence. Whittaker, who has 31 Scotland caps, came through Hibs' youth ranks before joining Rangers in 2007, and becomes Lennon's fifth signing of the summer. However, he will not be available for Saturday's opening League Cup game against Montrose on Saturday as he requires international clearance. He told the official Hibs site: "I am delighted to be back at Hibernian. When I decided to return to Scotland, Hibernian was the club I hoped to come to. "While the discussions have taken a while, they have always been positive and I am very pleased to be back playing at Easter Road for the Hibernian fans. "I hope I can play my part in ensuring a successful return to the top flight."

  5. Nottingham Forest have completed the signing of Jason Cummings from Hibernian on a three-year deal. The 21-year-old, who scored 23 goals in 39 appearances for Scottish Championship-winning Hibs last season, becomes Mark Warburton's first addition of the summer. Cummings, capped 11 times by Scotland at Under-21 level, netted 71 times in 150 appearances after breaking into the Hibs first team in November 2013, and also scored eight times against Rangers during Warburton's one-year spell in charge at Ibrox. Hibs chief executive Leeann Dempster is quoted by Sky Sports News as saying: "Jason goes with our very best wishes. He made a major contribution to our season in gaining us promotion back to the Premiership. "At this time last year, Jason had one year left on his contract, and the club had spent significant time trying to secure him on a new deal. This was only achieved after long negotiations with the player and his agent and was helped greatly by Neil [Lennon] joining the club. "Had we failed to secure that deal, it is likely that Jason's contract would have run down. That would have meant that had he wanted to, he could have signed a pre-contract with another club in the middle of our push for promotion and then left for nothing this summer. "For the board, gaining promotion was absolutely the number one priority - hence the reason that a bid from another English club was refused last summer. "That top objective was achieved and in addition, rather than see a talented player leave for nothing this summer, the club has secured a significant fee." "In preparation for the new season we will continue to work to bring our core targets to the club."

  6. Former Celtic and Bolton Wanderers boss Neil Lennon has been confirmed as the new manager of Hibernian after signing a two-year deal. The 44-year-old, who has been out of work since parting company with Bolton in March, will be assisted by Garry Parker at Easter Road. The Northern Irishman succeeds Alan Stubbs, who ended Hibs' 114-year wait to win the Scottish Cup, then left for Rotherham United after two seasons in charge. "As soon as Neil was identified as the outstanding candidate we were determined to bring him to Easter Road," said Hibs chief executive Leeann Dempster. "He has managed at a very high level, taking Celtic to the last 16 of the Champions League, and we were attracted by his ability to get the most out of players and his driven, winning mentality." Hibs have spent the last two seasons in the Scottish Championship and missed out on promotion to the Premiership after a play-off semi-final defeat by Falkirk, having also lost out at the same stage of the play-offs in 2015.
  7. I must say I'm a little underwhelmed by the appointment of former Hibernian boss Alan Stubbs as the new Rotherham United manager, particularly on a three-year contract. Yes, he has delivered Hibs a historic first cup in over a century, but he also had two years to get the side – for so long a mainstay of the Scottish Premiership – promoted from the second tier, and has failed to do so, despite the league having been composed of mostly poor teams in the last few years, with the exception of Hearts and Rangers - who are back in the first division. In addition, the difference between the Scottish and English leagues is monumental – the Scottish Championship is probably on a par with League One or Two in England, and Stubbs will soon realise the gulf in class between the two nations when he makes his Football League Championship bow. I don’t want to sound like a doom monger – I wish him all the best and he will have my full support going into the new season, but given his credentials upon his appointment, I am just a little cautious of whether he will be able to handle the jump in quality between leagues. What we need to make sure we do this summer is recruit well and exploit the transfer market as best we can, as our budget will be miniscule compared to the top teams in the division – in particular Aston Villa and Newcastle United. The ball is now in your court, Alan – I will be first to take back all the above if you give us a good season in charge of Rotherham, so I invite you to do your best to prove me wrong!
  8. Alan Stubbs has been confirmed as the new manager of Championship side Rotherham United on a three-year deal. The 44-year-old, previously in charge of Scottish outfit Hibernian, was given permission to speak to the Millers on Monday. He leaves Hibs less than two weeks after guiding the Easter Road side to a first Scottish Cup win in 114 years. The former Celtic and Everton defender replaces Neil Warnock at the New York Stadium after the 67-year-old left at the end of the campaign, saying it would have been "wrong" of him to sign a new deal. Stubbs took over at Hibs in June 2014 following the side's relegation from the Premiership, and they finished second and third in his two seasons in charge but were unable to gain promotion via the play-offs on both occasions.
  9. Hibernian have won their first Scottish Cup in over a century after coming from behind to beat Rangers 3-2 in Saturday's final at Hampden Park. The Edinburgh side took the lead after just three minutes played when Anthony Stokes raced into the penalty area and guided the ball into the far corner of Wes Foderingham’s net. Rangers, however, equalised just before the half-hour mark, courtesy of Kenny Miller heading home James Tavernier's cross. Stokes and Miller then hit the woodwork before Andy Halliday fired the Old Firm side ahead in the 64th minute, thanks to a left-footed shot which beat Hibs goalkeeper Conrad Logan and crept in at the far post. It looked as if the promoted Glasgow outfit were en route to the win, but then Stokes surged into the box and outmuscled Tavernier to get his head to Liam Henderson’s corner, bulleting the ball high into Foderingham’s net. A dramatic tie was settled in a climactic fashion when David Gray made the most of another Henderson corner to nod home and win Hibs the Scottish Cup for the first time since 1902.
