Former Hibee Danny Lennon has thrown his hat into the ring for the Easter Road managerial vacancy.

The 45-year-old, axed as St Mirren boss at the end of last season, spent six years with Hibs at the start of his playing career and believes he can help get them back on track after their relegation from the Premiership. He said: “There are some real challenges ahead for everyone at Hibs, but I would welcome the chance to address those challenges.”

Lennon believes he is well-equipped to help nurture Hibs’ batch of promising youngsters into the first team. He said: “Hibs have some cracking young players coming through and breaking into the first team right now. I would love to work with these young lads and turn them into first-team regulars.

“I’ve been in their shoes and I know the expectations and demands of wearing that Hibs jersey. Developing young players into first-team regulars is one of the areas of football management I love the most.”

Lennon would be keen to restore an exciting brand of football to Easter Road. He said: “Firstly, Hibs must compete well enough to get back into the top flight quickly. Secondly, they need to play an attractive style of football that will excite the fans. I would welcome the chance to give Hibs fans the type of football they want.”
