Paul Heckingbottom talks about his future at Hibs following cup nightmare

Hibs boss Paul Heckingbottom has spoke out about his future at Easter Road, following the 5-2 defeat to Celtic.

The manager has become under increasing pressure with his side second bottom in the league.

Heckingbottom said: “I don’t know and I don’t consider that, I wouldn’t be doing my job properly and wouldn’t be fair if I consider myself in these positions.

“There’s myself, all the staff, all the players, thousands of fans here, that’s who’s disappointed. It would be wrong of me to sit here and just be considering myself. I’ll keep getting asked it (question on his future), it’s irrelevant.

“All we are trying to do is our best for the club. We want the wins, we should have had more. Of course there have been contributing factors but we have to consider what we can do and try and handle that.”

Hibs fans have made their feelings known around the club. He said: “I understand the anger, we seen it, they are also seeing a team which is fully committed. it was the quality which let us down first half, made the game really difficult for us.”
