Even though he hasn’t formally lost his job yet, Neil Lennon won’t be managing Hibernian again.

His suspension meant that Eddie May and Grant Murray took charge of the 3-1 win over St Mirren.

May has confirmed that he doesn’t want the job full-time, so the Easter Road side are looking for a new manager.

The only option they should be considering is former Celtic and Scotland manager Gordon Strachan.

Strachan is a boyhood Hibs fan, and you would imagine for that reason alone he would be interested in the job.

He will also want to rebuild his reputation in Scotland, which has taken a dent since he was sacked as Scotland manager after failing to qualify for the World Cup in 2018.

Strachan would be a high-profile appointment, and he did do a very good job at Celtic.

He lead the club to the last 16 of the Champions League twice, whilst Brendan Rodgers has yet to do that once.

He also masterminded a superb title triumph at Celtic in 2008, making up an 8 point defecit with a month of the season remaining.

The only question to be asked is – would Strachan take the job?

For the reasons outlined above, the answer has to be ‘Yes’.

Now it is up to Hibernian to ask him the question.
