Having to fire people is amongst the most difficult things Iíve ever had to do (it gets easier with time, experience and a bit of your soul dying every time) and no matter how justified it might have been, the person in the other end of it never agrees with the decision.
Whelan not holding back when talking about Stendel.
Ommited from the Hibs squad and informed by a WhatsApp message, turned up at training the next day and wasn't in either group so just went to the gym and the manager wouldn't speak to him because he was, 'too busy'.
I don't really care but it's proper amateur hour the way they are dealing with this. Fingers crossed it causes a bit of bad feeling and division in the dressing room.

Who cares if he's just married? What's that got to do with a football clubs decision!?
Plus, he's still due near half a million quid if numbers flying around are near the mark. Not like he's just been made redundant and binned with minimal payoff. Probably a millionaire or very rich man anyway and spent 15 years playing football and people feel sorry for him? He was one of them that absolutely loved getting it up us when they beat us! Hard life. That's show business, that's football and he's horse **** these days anyway so unfortunately it'll probably improve their defence. Plus he signs off with the honour of being their top goalscorer this season (with 3 own goals 😂).
Hibs treat players like people. See Shiels/Zemmama/Allan. Hearts have treated their players like **** for decades. No humanity or humility. A cretinous organisation.
Something I took immense pride in about Hibs was when Martin Boyle got injured on loan with us in the final game of the 14/15 season and we kept him at us looking after him with our medical staff for the next few weeks/month until he signed with us permanently. We probably were going to sign him anyway but we had no obligation to do that and could have easily sent him back to Dundee to get treatment and looked elsewhere.
