Despite Hibernian recently being taken over by Ron Gordon, head coach Paul Heckingbottom has revealed that nothing has changed at the club so far.
Heckingbottom has disclosed that although the club is now debt-free, things have not dramatically changed at the club.
“Plans haven’t changed”
“Nothing’s changed in the immediate near future. Plans haven’t changed” he said, in an interview on Sky Sports Scotland Twitter.
He then disclosed what he and Gordon have spoken about so far.
“What we both said to each other, which is fantastic, it’s about improvement now. In all areas of the football club.”

Heckingbottom’s comments sound very intriguing for the Easter Road support. However, it might take a while for any changes made by Gordon to come to light.
Manager and owner on same page
Of course, the fact that Hibs are now debt-free is a huge bonus for the club. As is the fact that manager and new owner both seem to be on the same page. That is often a problem when a new owner comes into a club, they want to appoint their own man. That doesn’t seem to be the case at Hibs.
Perhaps in January we will see evidence of the Gordon effect, maybe Hibs will spend big in an attempt to bring some silverware to Easter Road.
For now though, the quest for a trophy begins on Saturday, when Hibs take on Stirling Albion in the Betfred Cup group stage.
