Former Hibs manager Terry Butcher

The ex-England captain has plenty of experience in Scottish football. He led the defensive line at Rangers for four years before managerial stints at Motherwell, Inverness CT and Easter Road.

Butcher replaced Pat Fenlon in the autumn of 2012 but lasted less than a year after the club were relegated from the top flight.

His most recent post saw him hired as head coach of the Philippines but he left the role before taking charge of a single game.
