HIBERNIAN have opted to punish the trio of players that broke the club curfew whilst on a winter training camp.

Anthony Stokes, Martin Boyle and Danny Swanson were the guilty parties and Neil Lennon has decided to discipline the players for their breaches.

A club source confirmed the events surrounding the trio.

“The players were given a day off on the Wednesday so were permitted by the manager to have a few beers on Tuesday night.

“The guys didn’t leave the hotel but they did breach the curfew set by the manager that night.

“The club went through all the proper channels, the players have been discplined and now as far as the manager is concerned we have drawn a line under it.”

The Edinburgh Evening News reported that the trio were summoned to a meeting at the club’s Portimao training base in the Algarve with Lennon and George Craig, head of footballing operations, where the trio were reprimanded.

However, it is believed that the management team were happy to draw a line under the situation but instructed the trio to train alone before the return to Edinburgh.

Hibs play Hearts in a crucial Scottish Cup fixture next weekend and Lennon will be hoping that his side can continue their eight-match unbeaten streak over their city rivals.
