He had grown frustrated at Easter Road having fallen out with Neil Lennon and at a lack of game time.

The 25-year-old took to Instagram to issue a farewell to the club and supporters.

It read: “Thank you for everything @hibernianfootballclub. All the best to the lads & fans. Special place!!!”

Maclaren had a strong start to his Hibs career after joining 12 months ago. He formed a fearsome partnership with Florian Kamberi, scoring six goals in 11 starts, including a hat-trick against Rangers on the final day of the season. However, he has scored just once in 15 outings this campaign.
