Orman suffers second seizure
Hibs' Alen Orman
Alen Orman suffered an epileptic seizure in October
There were fresh concerns for Hibernian wing-back Alen Orman when he was stretchered off the Easter Road pitch during Saturday's warm-up.

The 24-year-old Bosnian-born Austria international suffered an epileptic fit during a CIS Cup tie against Rangers in October.

Orman, who joined Hibs from Royal Antwerp in 2001, disclosed at the time that he had been living with epilepsy for a year but vowed to beat the medical condition.

But he appeared to suffer a similar problem before the match against Motherwell on his return to the starting line-up after a couple of months out of the picture with Hibs.

Hibs boss Bobby Williamson confirmed to BBC Scotland that it was another epileptic fit but that the player had recovered in the physio's room.

However, Orman was not fit to start the match and had been replaced by 18-year-old Steven Whittaker.
