Craig tight-lipped over future

Hibernian caretaker manager Tommy Craig remained tight-lipped on his future at the Edinburgh club after the 2-1 defeat to St Mirren in Paisley.

"I'm in charge of the team until instructed otherwise," he said. "That's as much as I can say at this particular point in time.

Asked if the players needed a permanent manager, Craig said: "It is better for everyone if the situation is resolved."

Asked if he had been interviewed, he said: "I haven't thought about it."

Craig was unhappy with the performance at St Mirren Park.

We are not passing the ball the way we normally can

"In the first half, we were very, very poor," he said.

"Quite a few of the players seemed to go into their shells at a time when we need everybody to stand up and be counted.

"I know the uncertainy brings upon players that kind of feeling, but I said at half time it takes big brave hearts to get out of this run.

"In the second half, we picked up a bit and got a goal, but it was all too little, too late."

Craig was unable to explain the poor run of one win in Hibs' last 12 games.

"If ask me to put finger on any one thing, I can't," he said.

"We are not passing the ball the way we normally can."
