Two Hibs’ fringe players have left the club

Callum Crane and Cammy Bell have joined Livingston and Partick Thistle after their contracts expired.

Crane, 22, is a left-back, but has also been seen playing for the Hibernian Development Squad as a left wing-back, left-sided central defender and in the midfield.

A product of the Hibernian Academy, Callum was a feature of the Hibernian Development Squad last season and made two first-team appearances.

The defender also enjoyed two loan spells, his first at Berwick Rangers and his second with Alloa Athletic, where he helped the Clackmannanshire side to promotion to the Ladbrokes Championship.

The consistency and form of new Scotland international Lewis Stevenson saw his first team chances limited.

Goalkeeper Bell was a deadline day signing in January acting as a replacement for Scott Bain, who was brought in as cover for Ofir Marciano following a shoulder injury sustained by Ross Laidlaw.

He made his debut away to St Johnstone following the early dismissal of Marciano and put in an assured display.

Bell played the entirety of the next match against Partick Thistle, keeping a clean sheet in the process as Hibernian won 2-0.

A club spokesperson said: “Both players leave with the best wishes of Hibernian and our thanks for their service to the Club.”
