Jack Ross aims to sign "one or two" players after agreeing a new contract at Hibs

Jack Ross has his sights on "consistent success" with Hibernian after signing a new contract to remain as head coach until 2024.

The former St Mirren and Sunderland boss, 45, took over at Easter Road in November 2019.

In his first full season he led Hibs to third place in the Scottish Premiership.

"Something we speak about a lot here is how can we repeat last season and beat it again," he said.

"I spoke last season about how much I'm enjoying the job and its really easy to be able to commit to the club for that much longer but also to have that commitment and support from the board is terrific.

"From all aspects it's a positive and hopefully I can deliver on that support.

"I also know you have to deliver success in order to see that through but it does give you piece of mind that the club believes you are doing a lot of things right. Stability is not that exciting, particularly in the modern sporting world, but I think it does give you a better chance of consistent success."

Hibs amassed 63 points last term, just four shy of the club's top-flight record, and they earned a best-ever 11 league victories away from home.

There was Hampden disappointment in the cup competitions, with defeat to St Johnstone in the Scottish Cup final and League Cup semi-final.

Hibs begin a new campaign on Thursday as they host a Europa Conference League second qualifying round first leg against Andorra's Santa Coloma.

"We've got a terrific group of players," said Ross. "We are looking to bring in one or two to strengthen our group and I believe we have an exciting season ahead of us."

Chairman Ron Gordon described Ross as "a terrific leader for our team and club" and added: "He shares our vision of the possibilities at Hibs."
