Ex-Hibs boss Collins rejects KV Kortrijk offer

Former Hibs boss John Collins has turned down the top job at Belgian outfit KV Kortrijk.

The ex-Celtic and Scotland star, 42, was offered the hot-seat but rejected it as he did not want to be away from his family in Edinburgh.

He said: "It was very flattering to be asked and I spoke with the president, Joseph Allijns.

"It is a nice club, ambitious and just finished fourth in the league, so it would have meant being in the Europa League.

"But I didn't want to be away from my family again, which I did for six months with Charleroi."
