Hibernian have unveiled goalkeeper David Marshall on a two-year deal this summer.

The keeper is currently coming to the end of a short-term deal at Queen’s Park Rangers but will return to Scotland to join the Easter Road club.

The 37-year-old Scotland international will become a Hibee on July 1.

Marshall, who has 47 caps for Scotland, was the nation’s hero as the Scots qualified for Euro 2020, making crucial saves in penalty shootouts against Israel and Serbia.

He has made over 550 club appearances featuring in the SPFL, the English Premier League and the Champions League.

Hibernian FC manager Lee Johnson said: “I’d like to offer David a very warm welcome. He’s an excellent goalkeeper and actually a player that I’ve tried to sign before.

“His experience will be invaluable for us both on and off the pitch. It’s vital that our senior players aren’t just great characters, but also help us set the standard around the training ground and on matchdays.

“He is a fantastic addition to this squad, and I’m looking forward to working with him.”

Head of recruitment Ian Gordon added: “We have a young, talented, ambitious team, but we know that if we want to be successful, we need to have a good balance in terms of experience and leadership, and David Marshall fits that mould perfectly.

“He is a real professional, who will push on the other ‘keepers and really help accelerate the development of our younger goalkeepers like Murray Johnson.”
