At meeting at the Hibs Supporters Association last Friday a unanimous decision was taken to hold a rally at Easter Road on Saturday, June 7.

Yesterday a formal request was made to the new chief executive, Leeann Dempster, by Paul Kane for access to the East Stand.

The chief executive rejected the request this morning.

Paul Kane said: “We are very disappointed the club is shutting the doors on its own fans.

“For health and safety reasons we asked for access to the East Stand, which holds 6000 people, rather than have a large crowd gather outside the ground.

“Leeann Dempster has cited renovation work along with logistical reasons and the timeframe as reasons for turning us down.

“We are sure these could easily have been overcome and we could have worked together to sort it out.

“The health and safety of Hibs fans on the day is paramount. We will speak to the police and the council about it .”
