Hibernian and former manager Neil Lennon have finally parted company.

The news was revealed in a statement on the club’s official website.

While the debate will no doubt rage over the reason Lennon left, that is in the past.

Hibernian chief exective Leeann Dempster now has to concentrate on getting a new manager.

Time is of the essence as well, the Easter Road club’s season is in danger of petering out.

The club currently sit in eighth place in the league table, a far cry from last season’s fourth placed finish.

Their chances of making the top six and a lucrative games against Hearts and the Old Firm don’t look good.

The players need a new voice to galvinse them, as whatever Lennon was doing wasn’t working.

Eddie May took charge of the recent 3-1 win over St Mirren.

But he disclosed to BBC Sport that he doesn’t want the job on a permament basis.

Dempster and the rest of the Hibernian board should look to get the new boss in before the Scottish Cup clash with Raith.

It is a winnable tie in the only competition that Hibernian can really have success in this season.

A Cup tie win and a berth in the quarter-finals looks like the idea start for a new manager.

Now it is over to the Hibernian board to get the new man in.
