Terry ButcherManagerless Hibernian have taken a step closer to appointing a new boss after opening talks with Inverness Caledonian Thistle gaffer Terry Butcher. Hibs are currently hunting for a new man in the dugout after Pat Fenlon departed Easter Road last week. Ironically the two clubs clash in the SPL on Saturday, which is sure to be a fiery encounter given the circumstances.

The latest evolvement in proceedings has seen Butcher’s odds plummet to just 1/8 favourite (Sky Bet) in the Next Hibernian Manager Betting Market, with Kenny Shiels driftting to 13/2, while Peter Grant is now a distant 14/1.

Butcher, who next summer will be out of contract at Caley Thistle, is Hibs' number one target for the job, with the club looking to make a quick replacement following Fenlon's decision to quit. Inverness have reluctantly allowed the 54-year-old to open talks with Hibs, however they unsurprisingly remain adamant that they will be able keep their in-demand boss.

Butcher has enjoyed great success since joining Inverness back in 2009, with the Englishman leading the club to 4th last season, which is their highest ever finish in the top-flight. They have enjoyed a bright start to the current campaign, with only league leaders Celtic and Aberdeen above them in the table. Their home form has been particularly strong; recording five wins from six games at The Caledonian Stadium.
