Neil Lennon is confident of a top-six finish in the Scottish Premiership next season if Hibernian can hang on to their best players.
Hibernian clinched the Championship title on Saturday with three games to spare, capping a fine debut season for Lennon, whose side can also book their place in the Scottish Cup final with victory over Aberdeen next weekend.

Striker Jason Cummings and midfielder John McGinn are among the Hibs players other sides have been reportedly casting their eye over but Lennon insists potential interest in his players is perfectly natural.
"Now we're a Premiership club again, which is very exciting and very pleasing," Lennon told Sky Sports News HQ.
"The core of the squad is very strong so we'll be top six I think but we do no need to strengthen and we may have to fend off interest in a few players
"But at the end of the day we have assets in our team and there are going to be clubs that are looking very, very closely at them."
