Hibernian appoint Alan Stubbs

Everton youth team coach Alan Stubbs takes charge of Scottish Championship outfit Hibernian.

Alan Stubbs has been appointed the new head coach of Hibernian with immediate effect.

The 42-year-old has replaced Terry Butcher, who was recently sacked following his failure to keep the club in the Scottish Premiership last term.

Speaking to the club's official website, Stubbs said: "To be given this opportunity with Hibernian is a great privilege and a real honour. It is a massive club with huge potential.

"I'm excited about the future here at Hibernian and what we can all achieve together at the club - this is the start of the journey. The Scottish Championship will be a tough division, but I'm confident that if we approach the challenge with enthusiasm, optimism and belief then we can achieve success."

Stubbs had most recently been coaching the Under-21 side at Everton.
