Time at Club:
Hibernian recently sacked boss Terry Butcher just over two weeks after they were relegated from the Scottish Premier League. The writing was on the wall for the former England skipper following the club's drop down to the second-tier, and now Hibs have confirmed that they are on the hunt for a new manager.
The Next Hibernian Manager Market has since been suspended with Alan Stubbs reportedly set to be named as the club's new manager at some point this week.
Hibernian are the traditional cross town rivals of Hearts FC in Edinburgh and until last season they had established themselves as one of the top sides in the SPL. Hibs have had an indifferent past few seasons where they have finished 10th, 4th and 6th respectively. They were unable to carry on the momentum of finishing 4th in 2010 as they slumped to a disappointing 10th place finish last season. Their fans were hoping for a vast improvement this season but that hasn't happened and they are in the midst of a relegation scrap.
Hibs have won the Scottish League title on four occasions, with the last coming way back in 1952. Their last major silverware was the Scottish League Cup, which they won in 2007. Hibs have been through a few managers in recent seasons and if they are relegated at the end of the current campiagn then Pat Fenlon could be in trouble.
A mixed set of recent results has seen Hibernian collect wins versus Hamilton Academical, St Mirren, Dundee & Kilmarnock while suffering adverse results at Aberdeen, St Johnstone, Celtic & Livingston. Draws against Heart of Midlothian & Aberdeen has seen them show mid-table form at best.
