MARK MILLIGAN TO DEPART

Hibernian can confirm that Mark Milligan will leave the club following Sunday’s game against Aberdeen.

The Australian national team captain arrived from Saudi Arabian side Ah-Ahli in August and quickly established himself as an influential first-team regular.

A popular figure with his team-mates and staff alike, Mark’s experience, professionalism and quality was invaluable during a transitional period for the club.

Head Coach Paul Heckingbottom said: “Mark has been the ultimate professional since Robbie and I walked through the door, as you would expect from someone who captains his country and has featured in four World Cups.

“His experience and versatility has been important and Mark’s been a great influence on our younger players in particular.

“He couldn’t have given any more for the cause and I’d like to wish him well for the next chapter in his career.”

Mark added: “I’d just like to thank everyone at Hibernian for the opportunity to play for this great club and experience Scottish football.

“I’ve really enjoyed my time here and I’m sorry it’s come to an end.

“I hope the club continues to go from strength to strength and I would like to thank all the wonderful team-mates, members of staff and supporters I’ve met along the way.”

Mark leaves with the best wishes of everyone at Easter Road and we thank him for his contribution this season.
