Newcastle Assistant Manager Calderwood to take over at Hibernians

Chris Hughton’s assistant manager at Newcastle United, Colin Calderwood is expected to leave the club this evening to take over the reins at Hibernian, according to BBC Sport. The Scottish Premier League have announced that they will reveal the successor to John Hughes this evening.

John Hughes left the club earlier this month before the recent international break and in the following three weeks a host of names have been linked to the club. Former Chelsea and Aston Villa assistant Steve Clarke, Shamrock Rovers manager Michael O’Neill and Scotland Under-21 manager Billy Stark are all believed to have interviewed for the position but it is Calderwood that is expected to be given the top job.

Just this weekend, Hibernian recorded their first home win of the season with a 2-1 win over Kilmarnock and the former Scotland defender will be expected to do his best to replicate their 4th place league finish of last term.
