@JackMorrison94: "Folk are gonna moan regardless of the appointment but give me someone like Jack Ross who’s played and managed in the Scottish game (no matter what level it was at) and understands it, than someone like Hecky who compared it to lower level English league 1 and gave us Josh Vela."

@slumsden89: "He needs to know the Scottish game because the last disaster of a manager we had never and very much underestimated it, which I why we find ourselves where we are. Jack Ross had a good record at hearts of producing young players also!"

@Lmc2105: "Given that Jack Ross wanted to try and sign half this Hibs team this is good news! Especially for Flo!!"

@HibsCentral: "Jack Ross chose Hibs over Hearts, pass it on."

@samrutterr: Jack Ross doesn’t go to wee teams."

@BarryHibby: "If it is Jack Ross and it’s looking likely then good luck to the guy! Everyone needs to get behind him including the negative fans that are slating him before he’s even taken a training session. Let’s get Easter Road bouncing again #GGTTH"

"Lennon - dug s*** at Bolton

"McInnes - awful at Bristol

"I predict Jack Ross will do well up here."
