Former Hibs striker Grant Holt has poked fun at Hearts’ relegation to the Championship by questioning the whereabouts of the Edinburgh derby on the 2020/21 Scottish Premiership fixture list.

The former Norwich City forward, who joined the Easter Road side in 2017 and helped fire them to the second-tier title under Neil Lennon, replied to a message from Hibs’ official Twitter account announcing the new fixtures.

Holt, who scored in a 3-1 Scottish Cup fifth round replay win over Hearts in February 2017, wrote: “Can’t find the Edinburgh derby on there, have I missed it?”

It’s not the first time the 39-year-old has enjoyed a laugh at the expense of Hibs’ rivals.

After St Mirren’s 1-0 win over Hearts in March, Holt tweeted a number of party hat emojis in response to the final result.
