Everton Under-21 manager Alan Stubbs has been appointed to the vacancy at Scottish Championship side Hibernian, BBC Sport has confirmed.

Stubbs was in charge of the second string at Goodison Park but replaces Terry Butcher at the recently-relegated Edinburgh side. Hibs fell out of the top flight at the end of the season and dispensed with Butcher’s services as a result.

“To be given this opportunity with Hibernian is a great privilege and a real honour - it is a massive club with huge potential,” Stubbs said. “I'm excited about the future here at Hibernian and what we can all achieve together at the club - this is the start of the journey

“The Scottish Championship will be a tough division, but I'm confident that if we approach the challenge with enthusiasm, optimism and belief then we can achieve success,” he continued. “I've been at Everton for almost six years and now I believe I'm ready to take on the role of head coach here at Hibernian.”

Stubbs played in Scotland with Celtic and also represented Bolton Wanderers, Derby County and Sunderland, as well as two spells as a player with the Toffees. A centre-back, he made more than 150 appearances for Everton, and became a coach at the club following his retirement in 2008.
