Bilong fails to win Hibs contract

Hibernian have ended their interest in former Cameroon World Cup defender Michel Pensee Bilong.

The 32-year-old was on trial at Easter Road but has been told that the club will not be making an offer.

Bilong, who is a free agent after leaving MK Dons, played in Hibs' 4-1 win away to Berwick Rangers.

Hibs boss Tony Mowbray said: "I have had many conversations with him and, between the two of us, we have agreed it is maybe best he goes elsewhere."

Bilong has already played in Japan, Korea and Portugal - as well as for Russians Anzhi Makhachkala against Rangers in the Uefa Cup in 2001.

The defender's international career saw him pick up more than 30 caps and he was in the Cameroon World Cup squad in France in 1998.

Striker Derek Riordan hit a hat-trick, with Scotland striker Garry O'Connor netting the other goal, against Berwick.
