McGinn said after signing: “It’s a really proud day for me and the family. No-one needs to tell me how big a club Hibernian is, or what the potential is.

Jack added: “Paul’s someone I’ve known and rated for a long time, since I initially worked with him at Dumbarton.

“First and foremost, his attitude is first class.
