Aidan Smith: ‘Why aren’t Hibs tying up Alan Stubbs now?’

At half past four last Saturday it wasn’t looking good for Hibernian. The team were losing the Scottish Cup final – not badly and not like John Blackley’s Hibs in 1972 and Garry O’Connor’s Hibs exactly 40 years later, both of whom were thrashed – but losing all the same. At that stage it was shaping to be another unhappy outing to Mount Florida for this semi-tragic club and you wondered: where were the losers’ medals going to end up this time? O’Connor launched his across the Hampden steps, a devastated Blackley got rid of his in the car park.
