Jon Dahl Tomasson labels Hibs 'lovely club' as he responds to Easter Road question

Jon Dahl Tomasson branded Hibs a “lovely club”, having admitted to conversations with lots of clubs ahead of taking over at Blackburn Rovers.

The Danish football legend replaced Tony Mowbray at the English Championship club this summer and was in the dugout at Celtic Park as his side drew 2-2 with the Scottish champions.

Tomasson, who led Malmo to back-to-back Swedish titles, was strongly linked with replacing Shaun Maloney in the Easter Road hotseat.

He was a strong candidate for the role prior to the appointment of former Sunderland and Bristol City boss Lee Johnson.

Tomasson refused to be drawn on specific links to managerial positions following the draw with Celtic but was effusive in his praise of Hibs.

“I think they are a lovely club, Hibs. They are lovely people and I wish them the best of luck,” he said.

“I can tell you I had conversations with a lot of clubs.”
