Hughes leaves Hibs post

Hibernian this morning announced manager John Hughes has left the club by mutual consent.

The Edinburgh club have not won since the opening day of the season and the 2-0 weekend defeat to St Johnstone proved the final straw.

Chairman Rod Petrie said: “John has been a hard-working and dedicated manager of Hibernian. As a former captain, and as a fan, he recognises that a fresh face and a new approach is the best option for the club at this time.

“We thank him for all of his hard work, and for his honesty and passion for the club.”

Hughes said: “I have relished every minute of my time at Hibernian, the club I have always supported and which will always have a special place in my heart. I am proud of what we achieved last season, and I wish the board, players and supporters every success.”
