Any other great servants of Hibs who never notched up a goal?

In a Scottish Cup game IIRC. Brilliant third man run goal, sublime pass by Latapy.

I remember him scoring from a corner against Dundee Utd at Tannadice as the game was covered on Sportscene at the time. Checked You Tube but no video. I'm getting old that was 44 years ago but probably remember it because I had never seen a Hibs player score direct from a corner until that time.

At least 2. Scored in the QF away to Partick in the Scottish Cup when we got humped by Celtic in the final. Also scored in that rearranged game away v Celtic in the league 1-1 in midweek after we were winning 2-0 on the Saturday until the fog came down with only several minutes to go. No way would that game have been abandoned if Celtic were 2-0 up.

I'm pretty sure he didn't score a goal in his whole career.

I remember years ago hearing a story when he was playing in France that his team won a late penalty when they were comfortably ahead. His teammates told him to take it and he missed! Had a quick look but doesn't look like there's anyway to corroborate the story.

Roy Barry who played 36 games for Hibs in 75/76 and scored 0 goals. Dixie Deans had tormented Hibs until he game up against big ,bad Roy. Barry kicked him up and down the park and even, said Dixie, up and down the tunnel. We won 2-0 that day. I think it was Peter Latchford's (Celtic goalie) debut and he had a shocker.

I was at the Sotheby's auction where Jock's family sold his league winners medals (2003?). The same auction where Pele's 1970 World Cup Winning shirt was sold. I know Pele's shirt went for a lot, but I got my hands on a Hibernian league winners' medal. That was priceless.
