11 Hibs pundits react to managerial change and Malky Mackay at Easter Road as 4 next boss contenders tipped

The last few days have brought a whirlwind of Hibs news and updates.

It’s been a breathless few days at Hibs and there’s little time for trying to digest it all in the next manager hunt storm.

Nick Montgomery has been sacked as boss after a 4-0 defeat to Aberdeen ended a spell lasting less than a full season. That happened amid the backdrop of club legends Paul Hanlon and Lewis Stevenson preparing to play their final matches at Easter Road against Motherwell.

Then the appointment of Malky Mackay as sporting director was announced, which has proven polarising in the fanbase. A morale-boosting 3-0 win over Motherwell on Wednesday night ensured an emotional day to remember for Hanlon and Stevenson, with their big night ending positively.

Now attentions are turning to who will be appointed as gaffer next, and how Mackay fits into the Hibs project, with Bill Foley’s Black Knights group also on the scene. Here are how 11 pundits reacted to the news coming out of Hibs - with four managerial candidates mentioned.
