The Scottish Cup-winning captain has been with the Easter Road side for nine seasons and will be celebrated with a match at Easter Road and a special dinner next campaign.

Gray famously netted the winning goal as Hibs ended 114 years of hurt to lift football’s oldest trophy when they defeated Rangers 3-2 at Hampden Park in 2016.

Gray was a popular player with Hibs for seven seasons before moving on to the coaching staff. He had two stints as interim manager in the 2021/22 after Jack Ross and Shaun Maloney were dismissed, respectively.
