A Hibs player has tested positive for Covid-19 and will miss the weekend’s match with Hamilton Accies.

The player is asymptomatic and caught the virus at home over the weekend. He hasn’t been near Easter Road or Hibs’ Training Centre since his diagnosis and will self-isolate in accordance with government guidelines.

Hibs’ statement reads: “Hibernian FC today confirmed that a player is socially isolating after contracting coronavirus. The player, who is showing no symptoms, tested positive after he came into contact with the virus at home over the weekend.

“He has not been inside the stadium or training centre since contracting the virus, and will be isolated for ten days.”


It means the player in question will miss this weekend’s match with Hamilton Accies. It’ll be a return to action for Hibs after last weekend’s Scottish Premiership match with Ross County was postponed due to a frozen pitch in Dingwall.
