Former Easter Road talisman Derek Riordan back at Hibernian


BY ALAN TEMPLE – Capital City Press

Former Easter Road favourite Derek Riordan is back at Hibernian as he hunts for new club.

The 32-year-old, who scored 90 goals in two stints with the capital club, is a free agent after leaving East Fife during the close season.

Hibs have agreed to let the ex-Scotland striker use their facilities to keep his fitness up, however, with an embarrassment of riches in attack, head coach Alan Stubbs is not thought to be considering a deal for the player.

Riordan was tipped for greatness when he burst onto the scene at Easter Road


The former Celtic man began his training stint at the club’s East Lothian training base on Tuesday as he looks to revive his career elsewhere.

Riordan turned out for Brechin City in August but Glebe park boss Darren Dods did not pursue the move after intimating that the player was keen to seek full-time football abroad.

The gifted attacker has also had spells on the books of Shaanxi Chan-Ba, St Johnstone, Bristol Rovers and Alloa Athletic.
