Former Crawley Town manager Harry Kewell was in attendance for Hibernian's clash at St Johnstone as speculation continues to mount over the Australian taking charge at Easter Road.

The ex-Liverpool and Leeds United player has been linked to the Hibees after former manager Paul Heckingbottom was sacked five days ago.

Kewell is keen to return to management following a year out. He was sacked by Notts County in 2018 after just ten weeks in charge.

The Australian ended his 15-month tenure at Crawley in August 2018 to take up the job at Meadow Lane.

Kewell is currently second favourite with SkyBet to take the job at 3/1. Former Sunderland manager Jack Ross is favourite at 1/3.

Speaking to Sky Sports before today's game at McDiarmid Park, Kewell remained coy on the rumours linking him to Hibernian.

He said: "I'm just here as a friend of a friend, I'm just watching.

"I think it's a fantastic club. There's a lot clubs up for new managers and being out of work there's always speculation but like I said I'm just here to enjoy the game."
