Birmingham no.2 Calderwood admits: 'I didn't achieve success I wanted at Hibs'

Colin Calderwood has admitted he did not achieve what he wanted to with Hibernian.

The current Birmingham City assistant was sacked from his position at Easter Road in early November and has spoken out about his time with Hibs, saying he was disappointed in how he performed as manager.

"I didn't achieve the success I wanted at Hibs," Calderwood said.

"I am disappointed in myself that I couldn't give them the results they deserved because I certainly believe in the players.

"It was not really about not having time because we live in the present and I should have had better results this season, without a doubt.

"We shot ourselves in the foot once or twice, but I can see beyond this and I know that group of players is good."

But Calderwood feels the Edinburgh outfit is capable of turning things around and moving up the Scottish Premier League table from their current position of 10th.

"I know there are players there that people will know a lot more of in the future and they are just progressing at the minute," he added.

"We didn't progress at the rate to get the results required at Hibs. But it is the right foundation for that club which is run in the perfect way.

"The structure is absolutely spot on and that is the one regret, that I haven't given the supporters the type of success they'd expect.

"If I'm honest I don't think that it was going to start this season but it was growing."
