Hibernian FC can confirm that Neil Lennon has agreed to join the Club as Head Coach.

Neil succeeds Alan Stubbs, who left the Club following the Scottish Cup Final win to become Manager at Rotherham United FC.

Neil joins on a 2-year deal, and will be assisted by Garry Parker. 

Rod Petrie, Chairman of Hibernian, said: “We are delighted to have secured a Head Coach of Neil’s calibre and profile, and we look forward to him bringing his drive and mentality to our campaign to win the Championship this season and secure promotion back to the top flight of Scottish football.”

Leeann Dempster, Chief Executive, added: “As soon as Neil was identified as the outstanding candidate we were determined to bring him to Easter Road. 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.

"On behalf of everyone at Hibernian FC we would like to extend a warm welcome to both Neil and Garry."
