Former Rangers defender Henning Berg is the latest name to be linked with the vacant Hibs job, joining former Man United star Roy Keane and ex-Barcelona midfielder Philip Cocu in the running to replace Shaun Maloney at Easter Road.

According to the Scottish Sun, Berg will hold talks with the Easter Road hierarchy in London as he looks to get back into management after leaving Cyriot side Omonia Nicosia.


Berg had a successful stint with Omonia, winning the Cypriot league and Super Cup double and becoming the first manager to Cypriot side into the group stage of a European competition when he qualified for the Europa League groups last season.

After guiding his side to the groups of the Europa Conference League this season, Omonia’s league form fell off a cliff and the former Rangers defender was sacked earlier this year.

Ex-Rangers star joins big names in the mix for Easter Road job

While some of the names apparently in the running seem fanciful, the likes of Roy Keane or Philip Cocu would be a coup for the Easter Road side.

Berg’s CV is pretty solid and he would make an interesting appointment at Easter Road if he does get the nod to replace Maloney.

However, it wouldn’t be a surprise if Hibs opted for someone with more experience in the Scottish game rather than the likes of Berg, Keane or Cocu.
