Kenny Miller feels Hibs have 'decision to make' on Nick Montgomery manager sack after top six failure

Hibs have been told they have a "decision to make" after failure from Nick Montgomery to deliver top six.

The Easter Road outfit have drawn too many games under the manager and this afternoon lost a late goal to end their Motherwell clash as a 1-1 stalemate. It was a result they couldn't afford and that was confirmed as they officially lost out to Dundee in their race for the top six before the split comes next week.

Kenny Miller, speaking on Sportsound, now believes Monty could be facing the sack from the club as he flopped in his efforts to haul the club up the table as was his remit when he replaced Lee Johnson.

The ex-Rangers man said: "I think they (the board) do have a decision to make, I really do. At the end of the season he's gonna have had 34 league games. This point he's had 29 to get the required points for top six. It's absolutely a horrendous season for Hibs - and Aberdeen for that matter - that these two clubs with the budget they've got - are not able to make top six.

"I think there will be questions to answer, there's been the takeover, investment, there will be questions over Nick Montgomery's position. He's had the time, I said months ago Hibs are not getting top six and I know it's gone right to the wire but I'd actually flip it that it's one moment that changes the whole perception, had they got into the top six, as they did last season by the way, on the last day because Livingston didn't win, does that mean you've done a good job because you've got them there? For me, top six is bare minimum for Hibs."
