When his playing career ended, Pat Nevin might have been expected to return to his roots - but for the former Scotland international boyhood heroes Celtic had become a large corporate organisation and Parkhead no longer felt like home. So Pat turned to Hibernian - and it is a decision he has not regretted for one minute.
In a revealing and wide-ranging interview published in the latest edition of 'The Hibernian' magazine, on sale around Easter Road Stadium on Saturday, Pat talks of why he chose the East Stand as the place to watch his football when off-duty from media work.
Pat said: "As soon as I went along to Easter Road for a game and sat in the East Stand, I knew after only a few minutes that it felt right. I was hooked on the ethos of the club, the way they want to play football. They demand entertainment - they demand good football and this mirrored my own views on the game and the way it should be played."
Nevin also looks back on his football career at Chelsea, Everton, and his return to Scotland and a spell with Saturday's visitors to Easter Road, Kilmarnock.
Joining the regular features from John Hughes and Chris Hogg in 'The Hibernian' is an interview with Hibernian Ladies star Laura Kennedy, who looks back over the first 10 years of Women's football in Scotland. 'Where are they now?' follows the career of goalkeeper Nick Colgan, while Hibernian striker Kurtis Byrne looks back over his 'Football Firsts'. This week there is a detailed round-up of the Scottish Premier League season so far while the magazine takes a sneak preview of the next side to visit Easter Road, Aberdeen.
'The Hibernian' is on sale at the Hibernian Club Store on Friday, at the Programme Shop on Albion Road and from sellers around Easter Road Stadium on Saturday from 1pm.
