Sunshine on Leith as Hibs celebrate with title party
Neil Lennon’s champions took the lead through Grant Holt just after half-time in front of nearly 20,000 fans. However, St Mirren fought back and recorded the draw which ensured their safety in the second tier thanks to Rory Loy’s equaliser on the hour.
But that was of little interest to the Hibs fans who were in party mood at a vibrant Easter Road. For the first time in several years they will be able to relax for the majority of May, while saying good riddance to their Championship stint which brought many highs and a few lows.
Yet, with a league title, as well as last season’s Scottish Cup victory, secured, the Hibees go bouncing in to the Premiership with ambitions to challenge the upper echelons of the league.
For now, however, Hibs fans can savour their moment as league champions.
