Last updated : 09 January 2018 By Steve Forbes

Hibs played a hastily arranged bounce game in the Algarve this evening, against Dutch side Excelsior Rotterdam.

The game ended in a stalemate - a 0-0 draw.

There were debuts for new boys Scott Bain and Jamie Maclaren, with Bain starting and Maclean coming on as a sub late on.

Liam Fontaine and David Gray both started, as they work their way back from long-term injury.

There was also a start for youngster Ben Stirling, who has been recalled early from his loan spell with Cowdenbeath.

Hibs starting XI:

Bain; Gray, Porteous, Fontaine, Stevenson; McGeouch, Slivka, Stirling; Stokes; S Murray, Matulevicius.

The Hibees play another Dutch side, Willem II, on Friday.
