Hibs head coach Nick Montgomery is hopeful of having a healthier squad for the final three games of the season, with goalkeeper David Marshall and Luke Amos in contention for involvement against Aberdeen this weekend and on-loan Manchester United Will Fish

However, he will still be without Lewis Miller and Élie Youan, who remain out with a hamstring issue and ankle problem respectively.

Speaking to Hibs TV, the head coach said: "Everyone is fit and available bar Élie and Lewis Miller. Luke Amos and David Marshall are both back in training, so the squad is looking healthier. 

“David will be involved; Will Fish might be a doubt, but other than that everyone has been back in training, and with three games in a week, we are going to need everybody.”

Doyle-Hayes 'will be like new signing'

Montgomery is also hopeful of getting Jake Doyle-Hayes back on the pitch before the end of the season. The Irishman hasn't kicked a ball since August last year and has endured a lengthy spell on the sidelines, but is back in training and close to a comeback. 

“For Jake, it will be a big boost for his confidence. It has been a very frustrating and difficult time for him and he has needed the boys and everyone in the building at HTC to keep giving him confidence that he can get back before the end of the season," Montgomery added.

“It is great to see him back training with the boys; you can see the quality he’s got and we are all hoping that we can get him some minutes before the end of the season so he can tick that box ahead of the off-season.

"He will be like a new signing for us at the start of next year, so hopefully we can see Jake out there with a Hibs shirt on and I am sure the fans will appreciate that too."

Newell 'turned Rangers down'

Meanwhile, Joe Newell has revealed he turned down an eyewatering contract offer from Rangers - when he was a youngster. The Tamworth-born midfielder came through the youth ranks at his beloved Birmingham City but had an offer from Peterborough as well as the Gers and in the end, chose convenience over cash.

"It was either Rangers or Peterborough," he told the Talking Transitions podcast. "They both offered; Rangers offered their standard youth team wage. I signed for Peterborough because it was an hour and a half down the road.

"I was on £55 a week at Peterborough, and Rangers had offered me like £300 per week, at 16. I never even got pocket money as a kid so it was f*****g ridiculous."
