SQUAD UPDATE | PLAYERS DEPART AFTER CONTRACT EXPIRY

By: HIBERNIAN MEDIA on 12 May, 2017 13:55

Hibernian can confirm that several players have left the club following the expiry of their contracts.

Scott Gallacher, Brian McLean, Alex Harris, Chris Humphrey, Grant Holt and Jamie Insall have all departed.

Goalkeeper Gallacher and defender McLean arrived on short term deals during the second half of the season, with McLean making two appearances for Hibs.

Harris is a Hibernian Academy Graduate, and made 60 appearances for the club since making his debut in 2012. ‘Boozy’ will be fondly remembered for his contribution in the 2013 Scottish Cup semi-final, scoring his first goal for Hibs as part of the sensational 4-3 comeback win against Falkirk.

Humphrey joined Hibernian on a short-term deal from Preston North End in January, and made a blistering start to his Hibs career with a man-of-the-match performance against Dundee United at Easter Road. An injury sustained in the opening minutes of our Scottish Cup win over Heart of Midlothian hampered his time at the club, with Humphrey returning to fitness for the final few matches of the season.

Striker Holt was an almost ever-present for Neil Lennon’s side this season, scoring 7 times across 39 appearances including 3 in the final 4 matches of the season. His iconic Incredible Holt goal celebration netted the Hibernian Community Foundation a cash windfall thanks to Marathonbet.

Jamie Insall signed for the club in the summer of 2015, and spent the past two seasons on loan at East Fife.

Development Squad members Aaron Dunsmore and Ali Smith have also left the club following the expiry of their contracts. 

It was announced earlier this week that James Keatings would also be leaving, with the striker agreeing terms with Dundee United.

We would like to thank all the above players for their efforts and contribution to the club and wish them well with their future careers.
