Twitter users want a soap opera, its the world we live in. I want the club to move on, and quickly, with no further escalation of the situation
It doesn't change the fact it's an embarrassing farce for the club . We have to move on but this is a season too forget on and off the pitch

The club are lying by saying that nothing untoward happened. If nothing had happened why was he not in the dugout on Sunday ? You don’t have a review the day before a game. I understand people wanting to back the club and i will be backing them, but the statement is an insult to people intellegence.
Why not just say that for legal reason we won’t be commenting any further comment and wish both well in the future.
Coz this is to save face for both.

Whether Lennon allegedly called LD a clueless river we shall never know. And if he didnt why was he suspended?

LD has to follow for having a part in this. if there was no wrongdoings as suggested then LD has just made a right tit of us and must go.

The statement says in black and white that nothing untoward happened. The statement says what it says because it allows everyone to walk away in agreement.

Yep , surely you can have a parting of ways without all this ? It's not exactly unusual

I can only say in my working life I've never seen anything like this . Looks like a face saving thing , money will help everyone to agree to the "facts" I imagine
Exactly, the events are now put to bed to the satisfaction of everyone involved and we move on.

This agreement stops the situation from escalating any further. It's in no one's interest for it to grow arms and legs surely?

I don't know what some folk expected here. It was either going to be a bland statement like it is or a full on legal dispute where ultimately it would be the same ending but with the club severely damaged financially, with performances heading to a relegation disaster, and reputations in tatters.
Of course it's a pile of shite but thankfully it's over and we can all move on for the sake of the club. After all, nobody is bigger...

It's a glowing reference for Neil Lennon and Garry Parker so just why Hibs are we letting them go?

I find that statement not in the least bit surprising but it's a total embarrassment. Six days of no comment briefing journalists off the record that both have been suspended and that they won't be returning and then the wording of that statement....

The rest of the season is on the watch of Rod Petrie and Leeann Dempster. Close on 14,000 season ticket holders are looking on....

It's pretty standard procedure Forza.
I've been involved in a few similar exercises (no, I wasn't the subject!) where an individual is suspended whilst an investigation takes place. I've also been party to compromise agreements.
We might all be curious as to whatever happened, but ultimately it's best for all parties to move on.

Lennon was a revelation for a couple of seasons. This season maybe not so much.
I'm glad we have parted amicably and without rancour.

The story will be Saturdays fish supper wrapper. Other headlines will emerge as the transfer window slams shut - that's the Scottish football soap opera for you.

I agree it was to save face and to allow everyone to walk away in agreement, that’s why I said it was exactly what I expected. I still think it’s a pack of lies though.

Arrangement to ensure both parties can move on swiftly which is best for all concerned. Perhaps we'll learn in years to come what really happened.

Fair enough. Fortunately we will never find out the gory details.

Exactly, no one ever seems to be fired anymore, it’s always done with the mutual consent. Everyone knows it’s complete bollocks.

Lennon did nothing to merit being fired though.

I think this statement is bullshit tbh. According to it he’s done nothing wrong, hasn’t been dismissed and hasn’t resigned? So why are we without a manager if done nothing wrong?
Absolutely this. A nonsense statement, this basically says nowt happened, nowt tae see here, when clearly it did otherwise we wouldnae be where we are. I'm not sure how this saves face for either the club or Lennon in particular, anybody thinking of employing him will ken something happened, they didnae just turn round shake hands and decide tae part company just because.

We don’t know that. Maybe the club would rather just settle this amicably and move on. My previous point was more of a general point about when a manager gets sacked. They’re always generic bullshit that everyone reading can see through. Managers very rarely leave by mutual consent.

So why is he away then ?
Said before - Lennon and Dempster can no longer work together as their relationship is beyond repair. The love has gone.
