Second player disciplined by Hibs

Hibernian have disciplined their second player in a week for offences that have ended up in court.

Goalkeeper David Grof has been banned from the wheel for two years after being convicted of drink driving.

The 19-year-old Hungarian's court appearance came three days after winger Filipe Morais was fined 500 after admitting kicking a casino doorman.

Hibs say both players have been dealt with through the club's own internal disciplinary procedures.

Grof, who is the third choice keeper at Easter Road, told the club website: "I apologise sincerely for all that happened and would like to say sorry to the supporters and everyone connected with Hibernian.

"This was a real error of judgement on my part and completely unacceptable in terms of the standards expected by the club."

The matter has been properly settled by the courts and David has already been dealt with through the club's own disciplinary procedure

Chief executive Scott Lindsay said that, as with Portuguese winger Morais, the matter would be dealt with in-house.

"David's behaviour in this instance is completely unacceptable under any circumstances," he said.

"The matter has been properly settled by the courts and David has already been dealt with through the club's own disciplinary procedure - the outcome of which will remain private between the club and player."
