Rowan Vine has revealed his disappointment that his short stint at Hibs didn’t work out.

The 31-year-old forward moved to Easter Road from St Johnstone last summer, but after initially toiling to win over fans, he fell out of the equation entirely when Terry Butcher replaced Pat Fenlon in November. After joining Morton, Vine said: “Hibs is a lovely club, but I’m the type of player who loves to play football. You want a level playing field and a chance to fight for your place. But, if the indication is clear you aren’t going to get a chance and your face isn’t fitting, you move on.

“I was glad to get things done [with Morton] as I knew that I wouldn’t be playing football for the rest of the year at Hibs. Since Pat left, I haven’t had a chance, and that’s frustrating. The game’s about opinions.”
