Good watch on Marvin Bartley’s Instagram account. Can still be rewatched just now, sure snippets of it will appear in the papers. Stokes speaking about his football career, particularly that day in May his feeling towards it all. Has a laugh with Marv about how he played in the other games leading up to the final. “ remember I said on bus going to final, no one will remember Alloa away, but they will remember today” Speaks fondly of Hibs being some of the most enjoyable spells of his career. End of interview says his next move will definitely be UK / preferably Scotland as his contract at current club expires in 3months. Says he would love another chance to play for Hibs but knows himself that’s probaly very unlikely.
Hard to believe he’s only 31 with amount of clubs he’s played for, not sure many on here would want him back for a 4th spell.

''It's always been just part of the culture. Growing up, for most working-class kids, is all about football, music or clothes. You might not have much money, but whatever you have got, you're going to look good.'' - Paul Weller
Watched it earlier. You could see what great friends they have become.
Stokes pulling no punches in what he has done, good and bad, in his career. 21st May 2016 was an unexpected bonus medal for him that he was no doubt grateful to assist in achieving.
Obvious affection for Hibs but as he said several times Celtic were always the club for him.
Fair enough. Honest answer.
Would love to see Marv in a coaching role with us in the future.
Yeah me too.
I know we can’t just keep giving people 4 year contracts like SDG and big Daz but I can’t help feeling Marv has a lot of value to Hibs and still think ideally we’d have kept him. It’s been done to death that he wasn’t replaced on the park and he clearly has a lot of off the pitch attributes too.
