Adam Le Fondre has aimed a parting shot at how 'certain people' treated him at Hibs as he confirmed his Easter Road exit.

The veteran striker, 37, issued a farewell post to the Hibees on Instagram and reserved a special thanks to director of football Brian McDermott and sacked boss Lee Johnson for bringing him to the club, as well as successor Nick Montgomery. The ex-Reading and Bolton star also showed his appreciation to the medical and strength and conditioning staff for nursing him back to fitness after a spell in the treatment room.

Le Fondre left with the best wishes of the majority of Hibs fans after scoring five goals in his only season for the club. But he aimed a cryptic dig by referencing the apparent poor treatment he received by unnamed individuals during his one-year stint in Edinburgh.

Posting on Instagram, he wrote: "Season complete, I’d like to thank Brian McDermott and Lee Johnson for bringing me to the club and Nick Montgomery for continued trust in my ability. I had a blast north of the border. Thanks to the lads for welcoming me into the dressing room, really good bunch of people! Some weirdos mind [laughing emoji].

"Thanks to the medical and S&c staff for looking after me during a tough period for me being injured!! Disappointed with how the season panned out and how certain people treated me but that’s for another day. Special thanks to the fans for making me feel very welcome, it’s truly a special club Hibernian and I believe they are on the road to great things I’m sure. All the best Alfie."
