    Model pro and an outstanding player for us, made us money along the way, respected the club. Wish him all the best.

    Wish him all the best played for the anti christ but never fawned over them like another well known ex Hibby.

    Fantastic player and career.

    Sometimes the Ďmodel proísí donít get enough recognition but he really was good.

    Think heíll be a fantastic coach and wouldnít be surprised to see him back at ER one day.

    Some player! Even his last spell at Hibs I thought he was brilliant.

    Wish the guy all the best and hopefully see him back at Hibs in some capacity in the future.

    Looking at the thread title, I canít resist the tongue in cheek comment, Ď he could fit in well with us, thení after our awful cup final display. On a more serious note, I wish the guy well, a very good professional.

    Agree totally fantastic professional and probably one of the best technical players we have produced. Hope it works out at Dubfermline as think I might as think Grant is a decent manager. Would be good to get Pars back where they belong in the top league.

    Great player who's had an outstanding career. A great role model for the young players at Dunfermline.
    All the best Steven, and thanks for your years of service to Hibs.

    Met him in a chippy in Bonnyrigg one evening it was after Leeds beat us in a friendly at Easter road circa 2004- 05 ? Still in his hibs gear , I was getting a scran before heading next door to the Calderwood ( pub ) And i asked for his autograph and had a blether about the game , He was bran new and chatted to me outside for 5 minutes as we ate our chippy then he said have a good night i'm away home ..Always remember what an easy going laid back guy he was , Pretty sure he said his family were Jambos

    Folk through the years i know that know him say he was/is the ultimate professional all through out his career and gave everything for the cause

    Always liked Whitts , That game at Easter rd against Hearts when he hit the post at the FF end and it bounced along the line and went out for a goal kick was ridiculous and sums up our brutal unlucky(ness) against Hearts

    Super player, great lad and a wonderful career to reflect and build on. In his last spell we should have used him more as a CDM, imo.

    All the best Whitty, future Hibs manager?
    A great day out ruined by the football

    Good luck to him. The treatment he got by a section of our support last time still sticks in my throat.

    Everything's been said but he was my favourite of that generation simply because he moved so easily with the ball and very exciting when he went on his slalom runs!
    Lovely man by all accounts and possibly will suit the modern role of manager, hope so and would be good to get Dunfy up in Premier league.
    Good luck to him and if he steps up to management I would love him to be a success at Hibs doing it.

    Hope Steven does very well in the future. An excellent player during his time at Hibs and it was a pleasure watching him play.

    Some Hibs fans just canít cope when a player leaves.

    If that same player has the temerity to come back, they get to hear all the abuse first hand.

    Remember it well Whittís just stopped and stared at the guy

    Absolute disgrace

    Especially to a player wearing the famous green and white sleeves and always gave 100%
