Montgomery appointed Hibs head coach

Hibernian have appointed former Sheffield United midfielder Nick Montgomery as their new head coach on a three-year deal.

The 41-year-old joins from Australian club Central Coast Mariners, where he won the A-League title this year, and will take charge of his first game on Saturday at Kilmarnock.

Montgomery was top of Hibs' shortlist and replaces Lee Johnson, who was sacked last month after a 3-2 Scottish Premiership defeat at home to Livingston.

He arrives with Sergio Raimundo as his assistant head coach and Miguel de Oliveira Miranda, who is the club's new goalkeeping coach, while David Gray remains first-team coach.

Hibs lost their opening three league games under Johnson, while they also suffered a humbling 5-0 home defeat to Aston Villa in the Europa Conference League.

They did however move off the bottom spot before the international break by beating Aberdeen under Gray.
