Hibernian legend Pat Stanton has given his backing to the board’s proposal of a new share issue to give fans the chance to own 51% of the Easter Road side.
Stanton, who fronted the BuyHibs consortium and was pretty scathing of the running of the Edinburgh club both on and off the park, has now lent his support to the proposals.
He said: “A lot of people have come forward since relegation, and they’ve done so because they care passionately about our Club. A lot has been said, and now it is the time to get behind the team, and support this plan. As far as I am concerned, the plan gives people what they have been telling me they want, a much greater stake in their Club.
“I am particularly delighted that the stadium and training centre will remain in the ownership of the Club, and therefore the supporters. I would urge supporters to look at what is being proposed, and I think they will find it to their liking.
“Things also look to be going in the right direction where it matters most, on the park, and I would urge everyone to unite behind the Club.”
