Hibs have today confirmed that club legends Darren McGregor and David Gray have signed new long-term deals with the club.
Gray, 31 and McGregor, 33 have both signed FOUR year deals with the club.
The club has revealed that both veterans will continue as first team players, but when the time comes for retirement, they will take up new positions within the club.
Speaking to the official club website, Hibs manager Paul Heckingbottom said:
“I’m really pleased that we’ve been able to agree new contracts with Darren and David but, in reality, it was a quick conversation on both sides.
“We’re fortunate to have two experienced players of real quality and I have spoken repeatedly about their qualities as leaders and role models within our dressing room.
“From their perspective, this club clearly means the world to them and it can only be a good thing that they will continue to help shape it over the next four years.
“Be in no doubt, they are first team players. The challenge, for the pair of them, is to maintain that for as long as they can.”
McGregor also speaking to the official site added:
“Walking through that door four years ago was a dream come true.
“When I was 24 and folding jeans for a living in Xile, if you’d told me at 30 I’d be playing for Hibs, winning the Scottish Cup and having such a big influence in the team I’d have shaken my head in disbelief. If you work hard, the sky is the limit.”
“It’s been a fantastic five years since I’ve been at the club and I’ve enjoyed every minute of it.
“It’s a really good place to be at the minute and an exciting time. The club is in good shape.
“The hunger to play football is driving me on and hopefully that will carry me through another four years.”
