Hibernian have confirmed that the former Celtic and Bolton Wanderers manager Neil Lennon has left the club by mutual consent.

Lennon's assistant Garry Parker has also left Easter Road.

A statement from Hibs read: "The club would like to place on notice its thanks to both Neil and Garry for their hard work and the success they have brought the club."

Lennon guided Hibs back to the top-flight after being appointed in June 2016 and helped them qualify for this term's Europa League by finishing fourth in the Scottish Premiership last season.

Hibs have been inconsistent during the current campaign and are seventh in the table after 23 fixtures.

Chairman Rod Petrie said: "We are grateful to Neil and Garry for all their efforts and in particular for leading the club back to the top-flight of Scottish football. We wish nothing but the best for Neil and Garry and their families for the future."

Meanwhile, Lennon said: "I would like to thank the board, the coaching staff, the players and all the fans for making the last two-and-a-half years so enjoyable. It has been my privilege to serve the club and I wish it every success in the future."

Hibs can be backed at 15/8 to beat Aberdeen in their next match on Saturday.
