Shaun Maloney was appointed Hibernian FC Manager in December 2021.
Maloney joined from the Belgian National Team, where he was Assistant Manager to Roberto Martínez and helped the Red Devils’ rise to number one in the FIFA World Rankings.
The 38-year-old put pen-to-paper on a three-and-a-half year deal and was joined by a management team of Gary Caldwell (Assistant Manager), Valerio Zuddas (First Team Coach and Conditioning) and Brian Doogan (Head of Technical Support), alongside David Gray (First Team Coach) and Craig Samson (Goalkeeping Coach).
He arrived at Easter Road with a strong reputation in football through his coaching background and his playing days. He is one of the brightest young coaches in the game with an attack-minded, dynamic style of football.
Hailing from Malaysia, Maloney had an iconic football career playing predominantly in the Scottish and English top-flight, alongside the MLS with Chicago Fire. He also won 47 caps for Scotland, the country he grew up in from the age of two.
After retiring in 2017, Maloney began to develop his trade in coaching under the guidance of Brendan Rodgers at Celtic, taking a position as B Team coach, helping young players progress into the Club’s first team set-up.
Just a year later, he joined up with his former manager Martínez at Belgium and played a key role in their climb to become the top ranked side in the world, developing a style of football that is attacking, free-flowing and creates overloads in crucial areas of the pitch.
Alongside this, he has undertaken his own football education in the Netherlands, has worked with footballers at the highest-level, and has an extensive knowledge of the Scottish game.
