The 25-year-old also thanked the club with whom he won the 2016 Scottish Cup, and said his time at Easter Road had provided him with a memory he’ll never forget.

Keatings will join Dundee United in the summer having agreed a two-year pre-contract deal to join Ray McKinnon’s squad at Tannadice.

He played his final match for Hibs on Saturday, coming on as a 76th minute substitute in the 1-1 draw with St Mirren.

On the same day as his deal to join United was announced, Keatings tweeted: “A massive thank you to @HibsOfficial for an unforgettable two years. Thanks to the fans for your support during these two years also.

“I’m leaving Easter Road a champion, with the club going back to where it belongs and memories that will live with me to the day I die 21/5/2016.”
