Hibs fans call on chairman to back Collins in market

Hibs fans are calling on chairman Rod Petrie to back manager John Collins in the transfer market after the club announced record profits of £7.4million yesterday.

Petrie also revealed that he sanctioned a 10 per cent increase in wages during the 12 months but Frank Dougan, treasurer of the Hibs Supporters' Association, believes the side will only improve if Collins can attract a better quality of player.

He told The Scotsman: "The results make very good reading and I think it's excellent.

"I would like to see the manager given more leeway in terms of wages for players.

"I don't want to go back to the days of spend and bust.

"I think transfer fees these days is dead money because there are a lot of good players out there on Bosmans. But I still feel one or two experienced players are needed in the team."
