Hibernian confirmed Terry Butcher as their new manager on a three-year contract.

The club confirmed less than 24 hours earlier that they had agreed a compensation deal with Inverness to bring the Englishman and assistant Maurice Malpas to Easter Road subject to personal terms being agreed.

They proved no hindrance to the deal proceeding and the Edinburgh side announced Butcher had signed the contract.

Butcher said on Hibernian's website: "I'm excited about the future and what we can achieve at Hibernian - it's a great honour to be appointed the new manager of the club."

Malpas joins Butcher at Easter Road after turning down the chance to step up to become manager at Caley Thistle.
Butcher looked on from the Easter Road stand on Saturday as Malpas led the visitors to a 2-0 win over Hibernian to move into second spot in the Scottish Premiership.

Hibs sit in seventh place in the league and have lost four games in a row.
