Scott Robertson has become the latest victim of Hibernian’s failure to win promotion after confirming he has left the Easter Road club.
The former Scotland internationalist took to Twitter to announce his departure.
Robertson and the club are understood to have failed to reach an agreement on a new contract on reduced terms.
He follows skipper Liam Craig in exiting the capital club as head coach Alan Stubbs rebuilds for another tilt at the Championship title next season.
Robertson wrote: “It saddens me to say that I won’t be at Hibs next season. I enjoyed last season and I am saying goodbye to a lot of true friends #goodlucknextyear.”
The 30-year-old joined Hibs in January 2013 following a miserable stint South of the border with Blackpool and, despite helping the Hibees to a Scottish Cup final in his first six months at the club, he endured the ignominy of relegation the following season.
He was a key part of Stubbs’ side last term, diligently breaking up play in the heart of midfield, however he is now on the hunt for a new club.
Prior to joining Blackpool in 2012, Robertson starred for both sides of the Dundee divide, lifting the 2010 Scottish Cup with United and winning two caps for Scotland.
