Robbie Fowler “contacts” Hibs about vacancy as executive search continues


Robbie Fowler wants to be Hibs’ next manager, according to a report.

The former Liverpool striker has been out of work since leaving East Bengal in September.

The Daily Record says Fowler’s representatives contacted the Easter Road club this weekend and would like the chance to work in Scotland.

Previously, he had only managed in Thailand with Muangthong United, in Australia with Brisbane Road and in India with East Bengal.

But he’s desperate to prove himself in the UK and hopes he gets the chance to do so.

A source close to Fowler told the Daily check-in: “Robbie has already been in contact with Hibs to give them his CV.

“He’s a very ambitious young coach and very serious about this opportunity.

“Having cut his teeth as a coach on two continents, Robbie would love to have the opportunity to implement his ideas much closer to his home in Edinburgh.”

Hibs needs a new manager following the removal of Jack Ross last week, with Ron Gordon deciding that a change is needed at the top.

He was replaced by acting David Gray, but the Hibs legend is unlikely to take the job permanently.

John Carver, James McPake and Steve Kean have also been linked to the role.
