Hibs sack manager Nick Montgomery

Last updated : 14 May 2024 By Steve Forbes

Hibernian FC has confirmed the departure of manager Nick Montgomery today.

The ex-Central Coast Mariners manager, who succeeded Lee Johnson at the season's outset, was unable to reverse the club's fortunes.

The Hibees failed to secure a top-six finish on the last game before the split and have since dropped to 9th place following a defeat to Ross County and a 0-4 loss to Aberdeen on Sunday.

David Gray steps in as the interim manager for the first team, with only two games remaining this season.

The upcoming match at Easter Road against Motherwell tomorrow night, and the season's final match against Livingston at Almondvale this weekend.

The club issued the following statement:

Hibernian FC can confirm that Nick Montgomery has been relieved of his duties as Head Coach.

In addition, Sergio Raimundo and Miguel Miranda have also left the Club with immediate effect.

The Gordon Family said: “As a Board this was not a decision we made lightly, but felt it a necessary one to move the team forward. Although Nick and his coaching team worked tirelessly, their efforts didn’t deliver the results we had hoped for.

“We’d like to thank Nick, Sergio, and Miguel for all of their hard work and dedication, and wish them all the best for the future.”

David Gray will take charge of the First Team for the remainder of the 2023/24 campaign.

No further comment will be made at this time.


It's really dissapointing to be sitting here, once again, talking about another manager departure from the club.

Monty looked like a really exciting, and forward thinking appointment, but for whatever reason it has not worked again.

The club need to get the next appointment correct, or questions will need to be asked about what on earth is happening at Easter Road.
