Former Hibs player Stephen Glass training at East Mains

It’s been revealed today that former Hibs midfielder Stephen Glass is back training with the club.

The 34-year-old is without a club since being released by Dunfermline in the summer, and the Hibees have handed the former Aberdeen, Watford and Newcastle United player the use of the clubs £5m state-of-the-art training facility at East Mains, Tranent, as he looks to keep himself fit while he looks for a new club.

Glass has also been commentating on the club’s official TV channel, Hibernian TV, during the last few weeks.

As well as appearing on Hibernian TV, Glass has completed his A license coaching qualification, but still thinks he has something to offer ON the pitch.

Glass, who played 90 games for the Hibees in a four year spell, said:

"Running round the local park myself is one thing, but being in every day training with the squad, being pushed along by the rest of the boys and doing everything they are doing bar the matches is far more like it.

"I've been in for the past few weeks, determined that if something does come up then I'll be ready to play right away rather than be trying to get up to speed.

"Often when you are offered training facilities you can be seen as an outsider but the Hibs boys have been quite accommodating.

"The motivation is to finish my career on a high note rather than any monetary concerns."
