Hibernian are still to appoint a new manager, with Eddie May taking charge of Wednesday nights’ 2-0 defeat to Celtic.

It was a fairly insipid performance from the Easter Road side, who rarely threatened in the game.

They now sit in eighth place in the league table, and almost all of their focus will turn to the Scottish Cup where they will play Raith.

It would be a good idea for the Hibees to get the appointment made as soon as possible. In the league especially, the season is in danger of running away from them.

The Daily Record has reported that former Paul Heckingbottom and Michael Appleton are set to be interviewed by the Hibernian board.

The report also claims that the pair have already been interviewed for the post, but are in line for a second discussion.

Fans at Easter Road will be hoping that the discussions will be swift and the new man will be named as soon as possible.

There is a chance that Hibernian could still make the top six, and have a good run in the Scottish Cup. That would rescue what has been a poor season so far.

The sooner the new boss in named, the all at Easter Road can begin the salvage job on the season.
