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.

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.
