Former player Craig Paterson views this scenario as a clear sign of the reconnection between the club and its supporters in recent years, and believes such backing could help Neil Lennon’s team in their quest to finish second for the first time since 1975.

“The Hibs fans have got real faith in this team and in their manager and they’ve shown that by turning out in their numbers,” said Paterson.

“Hibs will need every edge they can get on Saturday, and having that away section of Pittodrie packed with green and white is certainly a plus for the players.”
