Alas, a new manager at Hibernian. The club’s 10th gaffer since the Scottish Premier League began back in 1998. Now called the Scottish Premiership since the start of the 2013/14 season, it is Terry Butcher who becomes the latest football boss to walk through the Easter Road doors, bringing assistant and wily old fox Maurice Malpas with him. The pair elected to leave high flying Inverness Caley Thistle in favour of stuttering Hibs. But on the other hand, the signs are there that Rod Petrie and co in Edinburgh may have conjured up their greatest bit of business in years.

News this week that Inverness Caledonian Thistle manager Terry Butcher rejected the chance to head south for English Championship side Barnsley certainly seems to have a sense of irony about it. Having said that, it could also be deemed a rare act of defiance, and one in which was warmly welcomed in the Highland capital of Scotland. I, as many other Caley Thistle fans were I assume, was fearing the worst when Butcher was granted permission to speak to Barnsley.
