Nick Montgomery sacked by Hibs after dismal run of results and fan protests

Nick Montgomery has been SACKED by Hibs after a dismal run of results culminated in a 4-0 home defeat to Aberdeen last weekend.

The boss was relieved of his duties by the board as they confirmed in a short statement this morning. That statement, from the Gordon family, read: "Hibernian FC can confirm that Nick Montgomery has been relieved of his duties as Head Coach. In addition, Sergio Raimundo and Miguel Miranda have also left the Club with immediate effect."

The Gordon family added: "As a Board this was not a decision we made lightly, but felt it a necessary one to move the team forward. Although Nick and his coaching team worked tirelessly, their efforts didn’t deliver the results we had hoped for.

“We’d like to thank Nick, Sergio, and Miguel for all of their hard work and dedication, and wish them all the best for the future."

David Gray will take charge of the First Team for the remainder of the 2023/24 campaign.

Hibs are now on the lookout for yet another boss after Lee Johnson was also binned early on this season. The club sit ninth in the division having failed to secure top six.
