May hoping Hibs can continue cup run as interim boss returns to former role

Michael Appleton has been linked with the vacant managerial post at Easter Road.
PA | 11mo

Eddie May hopes to have played his part in what proves to be a memorable Scottish Cup campaign for Hibernian after ending his temporary reign in charge with a victory over Raith Rovers.

Goals from Daryl Horgan, Vykintas Slivka and Marc McNulty's maiden strike for the club saw Hibs cruise through to the quarter-finals, despite Euan Murray notching a late consolation for the League One outfit.

May confirmed that a new head coach – thought to be Michael Appleton – is in line to be appointed in time for next Saturday's top-flight encounter with Hamilton.

A grudging head coach by his own admission, May will now return to his role as head of academy coaching, but was delighted to leave the incoming boss within touching distance of Hampden.

He said: "I've enjoyed it (time in charge) but I have a role at the club. I was never brought here to be the Hibs manager.

"I am here to develop players to a good standard and I am delighted to go back to that.

"However, it has been a great honour for the four games I have been in charge. Two have been successful and two not so.

"But we have a quarter-final to look forward to now. Hibs have a great tradition in terms of trying to win the cup and I hope they can go and reach another semi-final and final."

May allayed fears over Mark Milligan and Daryl Horgan, who limped off with injuries, confirming both players should be fit to face Accies. Ryan Gauld, who missed out altogether on Saturday, is facing a fortnight on the sidelines with a hamstring strain.

Meanwhile, Raith boss John McGlynn reckons the price tag around the neck of Hibs scorer McNulty, named sponsor's man of the match, underlined the chasm between the sides.

Nevertheless, he believes it will be a valuable learning curve for his young Rovers outfit as they chase promotion to the Championship.

McGlynn said: "Marc McNulty went for £1million in the summer – that's £1million more than the players we usually come up against in League One!

"Stevie Mallan went down south for a few bob as well so it was a big step up for us and maybe a bit of a wake-up call for our players who aspire to play in the top flight."
