Last updated : 07 September 2012 By Steve Forbes

Hibs have today moved to quash rumours that Danny Galbraith's forced absence from the training ground was due to any kind of disciplinary matter.

Infact the young winger has been told to stay away due to an on-going medical condition, the Hibees released the following statement on the offcial club website:

"Hibernian FC can confirm that the absence of Danny Galbraith from the Hibernian Training Centre relates to Danny's ongoing medical condition. The Club's medical team and the player felt that a short break from training would assist his rehabilitation prior to a further reassessment of his ongoing medical problems.

Danny's medical condition is a private matter between the player and the club. The player has not been subject to any disciplinary process or suspension by the Club. Recent reports in the media have been wide of the mark and hurtful to the player. The Club hopes that Danny will recover from his playing injuries in the near future."

The 22-year-old has so far made 60 appearances for the Hibees, scoring 1 goal.
