Ex-Everton defender Stubbs extends Hibernian stay

Alan Stubbs has extended his stay as manager of Scottish club Hibernian.

Former Everton defender Stubbs and fellow coaches John Doolan and Andy Holden have agreed one-year extensions at Easter Road.

The current deal will take them through the 2016/17 season.

Stubbs confirmed the news, telling the club's official website: "I am very happy to continue with the work in progress. I think supporters would agree that they have seen a lot of positive changes over the past year, and I know there is a lot more to come.

"I think most supporters would agree that whatever disappointments they have suffered in recent seasons are behind us, we are on the right track now, we're trying to play a winning and exciting brand of football that they want to see and be part of.

"I'm grateful to all of those who have supported the team, especially all of those who have put up their hard-earned money - all of that has helped me get players in - but we need more supporters to come back to their club if we are to continue to get stronger.

"We made decent progress last year, this season we all know we need to get promoted. It's how we react to the setbacks that will eventually determine how successful we are. If we buckle and fight amongst ourselves we will lose. If we stick together and show our collective commitment, we will win. I'm confident that we can win."
