Hibernian manager Neil Lennon has signed a new contract that will keep him at the Easter Road club until 2020.

The former Celtic and Bolton boss replaced Alan Stubbs last summer and guided Hibs to the Ladbrokes Championship title.

Hibernian have taken seven points out of 12 in the Premiership and face St Johnstone at McDiarmid Park in their next match on Saturday.

Lennon told the club website: "I am delighted to have signed the deal. I’ve made no secret of my enjoyment of my time at Easter Road and my desire to stay on at Hibernian.

“All of the parts are in place to build a strong future. We have a strong group of players, we are seeing talented youngsters like Fraser Murray and Ryan Porteous force their way into first-team contention, and we have good, supportive people running the club."
