Hibs midfielder Scott Allan has hailed the inspirational start to life under new manager Jack Ross.

Ross’ Hibees tenure has got off on the right foot with a fine 3-1 win over Motherwell. Goals from Christian Doidge, Florian Kamberi and Daryl Horgan secured the victory for the Easter Road side.

It was an impressive victory and one that Allan starred in. His passing caused Motherwell problems all afternoon and his driving runs were a threat too.

Allan says that Ross has been a joy to work with at Hibs so far: “His man-man­age­ment skills with my­self, and other play­ers, have been re­ally good. There’s been a lot of ca­ma­raderie around the camp this week, which has been re­ally good.


“It al­lows you to go and ex­press your­self and I think a lot of play­ers showed that to­day.

‘You can’t buy that pos­i­tiv­ity. It de­pends on cer­tain per­son­al­i­ties and the man­ager and the as­sis­tant is a real livewire, which helps.”

The feeling is clearly mutual between the two parties, with Ross expressing his positive thoughts on Allan. The ex-Sunderland boss thinks the creative influence will thrive under his guidance.

“There is a mis­con­cep­tion about Scott at times,” Ross said. “He is a bril­liant boy and has a real thirst for foot­ball.

“He is prob­a­bly his own harsh­est critic, too. The qual­ity he gives us is hard to come by, so you need to try to har­ness it. I think he’ll en­joy the en­vi­ron­ment we cre­ate here.”
