Aiden McGeady has left Hibernian after a season at Easter Road that was disrupted by injury.

The 93-times capped Republic of Ireland international was a high-profile addition to the squad when he joined last year on a one-year deal.

However, the former Celtic, Spartak Moscow, Everton and Sunderland winger’s contribution was restricted to just 14 appearances and two goals during his time at the club.

“I’ve enjoyed my time at Hibs and wish the lads, supporters, and the staff all the best for next season,” McGeady told the club website.

The 37-year-old is one of five departures announced by the club. Kevin Dabrowski, Mikey Devlin, Tom Carter and Josh McCulloch are also leaving Hibs this summer.

Goalkeeper Dabrowski leaves after six years with Hibs and the 24-year-old will now look to progress his career elsewhere.

“Hibs will always mean a lot to me,” he said. “I had a special relationship with the supporters and will always be thankful for the way they welcomed me into the club. I wish everyone at Hibs nothing but the best in the future.”

Hibernian FC’s director of football Brian McDermott said: “I would like to thank Aiden, Kevin and Mikey for their commitment and effort during their time with us. I wish them all the best for the future.”

CJ Egan-Riley, Will Fish, Matthew Hoppe and Mykola Kuharevic have all returned to their parent clubs after loan spells in Leith.
