HIBERNIAN will appoint a new head coach to succeed Neil Lennon in a matter of days, caretaker boss Eddie May confirmed.
The 51-year-old, who has been in charge of the capital club since Lennon's shocked game last month, revealed that Saturday's victory in the fifth round of the Scottish Cup 3-1 over Raith Rovers would be his last party in command.
May will supervise the first team's training on Monday along with coach Grant Murray before returning to his previous role as head of academic training.
Michael Appleton is the current candidate for the post after impressing the Hibs hierarchy during two rounds of interviews and, although he is not sure who the chosen man will be, May revealed that an appointment must be signed, sealed and delivered on Tuesday or Wednesday. & # 39;
May said: "That will be my last game and I am delighted to go out and win." The new man is coming and at least we are in the quarterfinals.
"They told me that this was my last game and that the new man will come in. They told me about five minutes before the start, I will not be in charge
"I have no idea who they have, they just thanked me and Grant [Murray] for what we have done and the new man should be announced
"I know that Grant and I will train on Monday normally, and maybe on Tuesday or Wednesday, the new man will be announced.
"It will be exciting and challenging because the new man may put a different stamp on what he wants."
