Hibernian has confirmed the departure of experienced winger Aiden McGeady, along with several other players, following the conclusion of the 2022/23 season.

The 37-year-old McGeady, who joined Hibs in June 2022, made a significant contribution with 14 appearances and two assists during his time at the club.

“I’ve enjoyed my time at Hibs and wish the lads, supporters, and the staff all the best for next season,” McGeady said regarding his departure.

In addition to McGeady, the club also announced the exits of Kevin Dabrowski, a goalkeeper who had been with the club for six years and made seven first-team appearances, and Mikey Devlin.

Hibernian's Director of Football, Brian McDermott, acknowledged the departing players' contributions, stating, "I would like to thank Aiden, Kevin, and Mikey for their commitment and effort during their time with us. I wish them all the best for the future.”

Several players are set to return to their parent clubs following the end of their loan spells, including CJ Egan-Riley, Will Fish, Matthew Hoppe, and Mykola Kuharevich. The club, however, has expressed its interest in retaining some of these players for the next season.

Ethan Laidlaw, a young forward, has been offered a new deal by the club. But the Academy will be bidding farewell to goalkeeper Tom Carter and full-back Josh McCulloch.

Hibs also confirmed a list of contracted first-team players. Among them, Irish midfielder Jake Doyle-Hayes will continue with the club.
