Vine uncertain of the root cause of 'soft centre'at Hibs

Rowan Vine has dismissed suggestions that Hibernian's luxurious training complex has caused the squad to go soft.

The Easter Road side are just three points above the relegation play-off spot in the SPFL Premiership and host city rivals Hearts on Sunday.

The Morton striker - who was moved out of Easter Road in January by manager Terry Butcher - has watched Hibs from afar as they continue to toil in the bottom six.

He is not convinced that their performances have been affected by high-end training facilities, though. "When I was at the club I heard all about a soft centre," he said. "But there's a lot of things that come together in how you get results."
