Don't be confused that's exactly what happened.
John his agent and his family made the decision of where to go they had a choice but only in extra time so to speak.
He spoke at length with BR whilst at Villa ( conveniently forgot) by celtic fans.
Decision was John's hibs did nothing wrong here.
The fee seems to be the big discussion but you got to believe that it's closer to 4 than 3 and let's not forget Hibs had a duty to St mirren which we carried out in full .
