Hibs praised for 'plucking diamonds' as Daniel Mackay deal so close to completion
Hibs are following the right strategy by “plucking diamonds” from the lower leagues in Scotland and investing in youth, according to former player Michael Weir.Mackay is one the brightest prospects in the Championship and Hibs had to fend off the attentions of several other Premiership clubs to land him. The Glasgow-born wide-man has agreed a long-term contract with the club and has spent time at its East Mains training base finalising his move.
“In all the conversations we have had with Daniel, his family and his representatives, it was clear that they all see Hibernian as the right place to continue to develop his career.
“We want to be known as the best club in Scotland for developing talent and it’s great credit to Jack and the staff that young players can see a number of examples of players improving under their guidance.
“We have no doubt Daniel can be another who develops throughout his time here.
“I’d also like to thank Scot Gardiner of Inverness and Allan Preston of IMC Stellar who have both been excellent to deal with in negotiations.”
