Whittaker left Easter Road just weeks ago, after a second spell with the club, having returned in 2017 from Norwich City.

He of course was part of the Hibees famed youth academy, and went on to win the 2007 League Cup before a £2m move to Rangers.

Whittaker made 243 appearances over his two spells with the Hibees, scoring 7 goals.

He was also capped 31 times for Scotland.

Hibernian-Mad would like to wish Steven well with his new club.

Editor's View:

A good move for Whitts, he clearly feels there is still some football in him.

Dunfermline have already made some positive signings and could be a dark horse for promotion next season.

Whittaker has been a brilliant servant for the Hibs over two spells and leaves with evey Hibees best wishes.
