O'Brien: I chose Hibs for Collins style

Alan O'Brien says he chose Hibs this summer because of the brand of football they play under boss John Collins.

"I did have other options, but the main reason for coming here was the style of football we play," he explained. "I know our assistant coach Tommy Craig from my time at Newcastle, and I know the way he likes to play the game.

"After I was told Hibs were interested I spoke to the manager a lot about the type of football he liked to play, and that was basically what clinched it for me. I've only watched Hibs a few times, but every time I've seen them they've played really good football."
