David Gray to take charge of Hibs for Premier Sports Cup final against Celtic
David Gray will lead Hibs out in Sunday’s Premier Sports Cup final against Celtic at Hampden.
The Easter Road side are closing in on the appointment of a new manager, with Shaun Maloney leading the race to replace Jack Ross, who was dismissed last week after a run of seven defeats in nine, but Gray will be in charge of the side for the showpiece occasion on Sunday.
Gray, who famously scored the winner for Hibs in the 2016 Scottish Cup final win over Rangers, hung up his boots at the start of the season in order to take up a coaching role with the Leith side.
Maloney, the current Belgium assistant manager and former Scotland player, is in discussions with the club over the vacant managerial position but no announcement is expected until Thursday at the earliest.
