Hibs have revealed tonight that chief executive Scott Lindsay is to step down from his position.

Lindsay, who only returned to his role six months ago, will leave the club in September.

Chairman Rod Petrie, club secretary Garry O'Hagan and finance director Jamie Marwick will share his tasks until a successor is appointed.

Lindsay was originally on the Hibees board between 2002-05, but then returned in 2007.

A statement on the official club website read:

"Scott told us some time ago of his intention to leave.

"But he agreed to stay on during the busy pre-season and transfer window and we are grateful to him for that.

"However it is 'business as usual' for now as Scott continues to lead our efforts to support the manager through the transfer window and into the regular season."

Lindsay added:

"I have enjoyed my time with Hibernian immensely," he said.

"As a football fan, it has been an enormous privilege and honour to serve a club with the history and tradition of Hibernian.

"I'd like to thank all of my colleagues at the club who have contributed hugely and supported me greatly during my time.

"The dedication and commitment of those people working within the club has been remarkable; matched by the passion and desire for success of the club's supporters."
