Reports tonight suggest Celtic have set the price if Hibernian want to take their assistant manager away to Easter Road and according to RecordSport that price is £300k.
John has a top reputation within the game and has learned his craft at Celtic over the years since his early retirement from the game.
Hibernian have been on the lookout for a new man to come in after relieving Paul Heckingbottom from his duties last week.
Hibernian have only been back up in the SPFL for a couple of seasons and are terrified of heading back to the championship.
There next managerial appointment has to be spot on and John might be the man to save them from their current predicament.
It remains to be seen if John would take the job if he was offered the chance but Celtic don’t appear to be standing in his way if he wants to make the move.
