'I believe I can do the job': Gray backs himself for Hibs manager role

Gray will be in the dugout as Hibs take on already relegated Livingston in their final Premiership game of the season.

Interim Hibernian boss David Gray has confidence in his ability to lead the team on a permanent basis after taking on the role following the dismissal of Nick Montgomery.

The former club captain, known affectionately by the support as ‘Sir David’ started his latest stint as caretaker with a win over Motherwell on Wednesday night.

It is the fourth time he has taken on the role on an interim basis and he believes he has what it takes to be full-time manager of the club.

Hibs travel to Livingston on Sunday for their last game of a disappointing Premiership season that has seen them part ways with Lee Johnson and Montgomery.

Speaking to the media on Friday, Gray said: “I’ve been in this position now, four times. It’s been uncomfortable for a number of reasons because as I say, first and foremost, there’s people losing their jobs when you work with them all the time.

“But in terms of backing my ability to be able to do the job, 100% believe I can do it.

“I think I have demonstrated that now on a few occasions. But always, first and foremost, I’m doing, at this moment in time what the club have asked me to do.”

Hibs can finish top of the bottom six if they beat already relegated Livi and Aberdeen lose to Ross County at Dingwall.
