HIBERNIAN head coach Neil Lennon has been reunited with Adam Bogdan after the goalkeeper completed his season-long loan switch to Easter Road from Liverpool.

The 20-times capped Hungarian internationalist has been recruited by Lennon to ease his personnel problems between the sticks, with recognised No.1 Ofir Marciano still recovering from a finger injury that he sustained on internationalist duty with Israel earlier this summer.

Ross Laidlaw, who has only just returned to fitness following eight months out with a shoulder problem, had been left as the only other option following back-up shot-stopper Cammy Bell’s departure to Partick Thistle.

Bogdan has not played in a competitive match since suffering an anterior cruciate ligament tear in his knee during a temporary stint at Wigan in November 2016, but showed up well during a recent training stint with the Edinburgh club.

Lennon, whose side return to competitive action on July 12 in a Europa League first qualifying round clash against Faroese side NSI Runavik, worked with the 30-year-old during his ill-fated spell in charge of Bolton before Bogdan joined Liverpool on a free transfer in summer 2015.

Lennon said he was delighted to be able to get an international goalkeeper of Bogdan’s experience signed up at Hibs.

Lennon said: “Adam is a very experienced and dependable goalkeeper and one I am pleased to have brought into the club ahead of the season getting started.

“Having previously worked with him at Bolton I know that we are bringing in a quality player with experience playing at a high standard, including representing his country.

“That experience and his skillset will help to bring on our other goalkeepers in the squad, as well as helping us to achieve our aims this campaign.”

Bogdan has made a total of six first team appearances for the Reds, his last coming in May 2016 in a 1-1 draw at West Brom, and is currently fourth in the pecking order behind Loris Karius, Simon Mignolet and former Aberdeen loanee Danny Ward.

The keeper was loaned to Wigan in July 2016 and made 17 appearances for the Latics before picking up the knee injury.

However, the Budapest-born player, who began his career at Division One club Vasas in his native land, said that the prospect of working with Lennon again was one he was attracted by.

Bogdan said: “I am really excited to be joining Hibernian for the season ahead and it is an opportunity I will grasp with both hands.

“The club is in a good position at the moment after a strong few seasons and it is important to build on what has been achieved, which was instantly attractive to me, as well as working with Neil Lennon once again.

“There is good competition for goalkeeping positions here, so I am prepared to work hard to ensure that I can have a good season and help the team as best I can.”

The Hibs fans could see Bogdan in action for the first time tomorrow night when Lennon takes his side to Berwick Rangers for a friendly match.
