After being officially announced by the Club, Montgomery met the media. Here’s the key takeaways.

What can supporters expect from a Montgomery side

“They can expect a team that’ll give 100% and work hard. In terms of philosophy, I don’t like to use that word. I’ll try and bring a new identity to the Club, and that’s not easy to do, but hard work on the training ground and the buy-in from the players, staff, and community then it’s possible.

“I really want to push this club forward, bring a real work ethic, and a style of play supporters will enjoy watching. Our identity is something fans can come and enjoy; a team with a lot of energy and I like to score goals. I like to win games of football.”

An important role for David Gray

I’ve spoken to Dave quite a lot; he’s a top guy. When you speak about the DNA of a club, he is the perfect candidate to work alongside myself and Sergio (Raimundo) my assistant. We spoke at length the last few days and went for dinner last night. I’m really looking forward to working with him. He has great knowledge of the squad and the league. He wants to learn and I see myself as a development coach; that’s not just players, it’s staff too. I will put a lot of effort into helping him in his career. Really looking forward to working with Dave and the rest of the staff. Everyone has been so friendly and from walking into the building this morning you can see it’s a family environment.

Why Hibs & Future Focus

“I took this opportunity to help Hibs become successful. The big picture is the Academy, there are some great young players in our Academy and within the First Team. There is a good blend of youth and experience in the First Team squad so I am really looking forward to working with everybody.

“It will take a bit of time to get to know the players, I like to watch the youth team games as well. The future of the Club is really bright, and I can’t wait to get started.

“I have got a lot of history with Scotland, my grandma is Scottish – I played for the Scotland Under-21 side and the Futures Squad. I thought this was the perfect club for me to come to.

“Right now, we aren’t where we should be in terms of the league position at the start of the season – but that is my responsibility now to put the belief into the players and to create an environment where everybody wants to come into training, not just the players but the staff too. We need everyone to be together and to buy into the long-term vision of making Hibs successful.”
