News of Alan Stubbs' imminent appointment as manager of Rotherham United has drawn a mixed response from fans of his current club Hibernian.

The 44 year-old Liverpudlian, who led the Edinburgh side to a Scottish Cup success just two weeks ago, will soon be announced as the new Millers boss, pending agreement of a compensation package with Hibs.

Most Hibernian fans wished Stubbs well, thanking the former Everton and Celtic player for his achievement in finally bringing cup glory to Easter Road after a 114-year wait, while others questioned the switch, claiming it was a step down.

Here are some examples of how they reacted to the news...

@WeeAlickie1 - Presumably #Stubbs sees Rotherham as a better stepping stone than #Hibs cuz it can't be for the chance of trophies or European football

@DaveD94 - Wish Stubbs all the best. He brought the cup home and for that will forever be a #Hibs #Legend

@dugihibbi - Hugely disappointed #stubbs is going from #hibs - think it's a sad indictment of Scottish Football that a club like Rotherham can take him
