Mark Milligan: Australia Captain to leave Hibernian

Mark Milligan has previously played for club’s in Australia, China, Japan and the Middle East

Australia’s veteran midfielder and captain, Mark Milligan, has played his last game for Hibernian after agreeing to leave at the end of the season.

The 33-year-old midfielder spent a single season at the Edinburgh club, making a total of 28 appearances.

Milligan originally signed a two-year contract with Hibs but head coach Paul Heckingbottom opted to trigger an early termination clause in his contract. 

Despite only playing a single season for the club, Milligan’s time at Hibs will be thought of reasonably fondly by fans and staff. The midfielder was a regular fixture of a Hibs side that finished 5th in the Scottish Premier League.

“His experience and versatility has been important and Mark’s been a great influence on our younger players in particular.” Said Hibs manager Paul Heckingbottom.

Milligan’s next move is still unconfirmed with speculation mounting that he will return to Australia’s A-League.
