Hibernian veteran Lewis Stevenson has opened up on the changes Paul Heckingbottom has implemented since taking over at Easter Road.

The recently appointed head coach has been in charge for four games, and has started well, winning three of them.

Stevenson has revealed that Heckingbottom is relying more on technology than previous Hibs managers have.

“He looked at videos of games before, and he thought we looked a bit ragged and that has been proved in the last four games, we have kept a good shape” Stevenson told the Daily Record.

“We do analysis on games and training. It is different from before, but we are all going in the right direction and enjoying it.”

Heckingbottom’s good start to his career at Easter Road came to an end in the recent 2-0 loss to Celtic in the Scottish Cup.

His next test is a match against title chasing Rangers on Friday night. Three points are vital to the Hibs cause in their battle to finish in the top six.

It will be interesting to see if any of Heckingbottom’s analysis helps Hibs get a decent recent on the night. They have a decent record against Rangers this season, with two points from two games against the Ibrox side.

To take that extra step and defeat Steven Gerrard’s side, they will need to show more than they did in their recent loss to Celtic.
