Hibs boss Collins told the OFFICIAL club website:

"We are off to Austria in the first week of July to a superb training complex. It is really first-class, and has been used by a number of Premiership Clubs over the years.

"We will also be working with Roger Propos, who is one of the very best physical coaches I have encountered. Roger has worked with
Marseilles as well as the Ivory Coast and Moroccan national teams. He will work with us on our pre-season programme, and the players will benefit from him. Amongst our pre-season fixtures are two at Easter Road against high quality opposition from the Premiership , and that should certainly whet the appetite."
