Paatelainen relaxed at facing former club Hibernian

Mixu Paatelainen insists it will be business as usual when he faces Hibernian for the first time since quitting as manager of the Easter Road club, reports the Herald Scotland. The Kilmarnock boss, who also played for the Edinburgh side, stepped down in May 2009 after a season and a half in the hotseat.

"I will treat it as a normal game. There is nothing in it. You play against teams that you have played for or you have managed before.

"There are obviously lots of friends there, good people and good players and it will be good to see them.

"There is no difference for me but it will be good to see the people."
