Neil Lennon is new Hibs' Head Coach

Neil Lennon is new Hibs' Head Coach

Lennon, who was denied a return to Celtic last month when his old employers opted to name Brendan Rodgers as their new boss, will be joined in his move to Edinburgh by former Parkhead assistant Parker.

But Alan Stubbs' replacement knows his job will be made significantly harder if he can not keep hold of his highly-rated youngsters.

Stokes spent the second half of the recently concluded season on loan at Scottish Championship club Hibernian and helped the side win the Scottish Cup, beating Celtic's fierce rivals Rangers 3-2 in the final at Hampden Park.

Hibs legend Pat Stanton insists the club have shown "real ambition" by pushing the boat out to land former Celtic manager Neil Lennon. I talk to them before and after training.

"But I hope for Neil that he does take them up".

Rotherham have confirmed the appointment of Alan Stubbs as their new manager after he was forced to resign at Hibernian. It's the challenge that interests me more.

"I've always had admiration for the club, obviously from the affinity with my playing days and managing days with Celtic".

He said: "What can I offer this club?"

Truck slams into bicyclists in Michigan, killing 5
The scene after five bicyclists were killed after being struck b y a pickup truck in Cooper Township, Michigan. He says authorities were searching for the driver, but there was no active pursuit at the time of the accident.

"I need to now sit down with the players I want to keep". I played in the lower leagues early on in my career.

But things did not go so well at his next posting at Bolton.

"I like to work very closely with my players", he revealed. That made the job incredibly hard.

The deadline for Hibs season ticket applications is imminent and the club have set a target of 10,000 sales, so were anxious to have their new manager in place as soon as possible.

"It's a great club but it's found itself in a really hard position". You think to yourself, "if Hibs could pull it off and get him here, that would be a good move".

"I don't have an issue with working in the Championship".

With this in mind the loss of the former Everton boss, after two seasons, was a huge disappointment for the club, but they will now look forward to a bright future under Lennon as they bid to return to the SPL.
