Neil Lennon and assistant Garry Parker have left Hibernian by mutual consent, the club have confirmed.

"Despite widespread speculation, the club confirms that neither Neil nor Garry has been guilty of any misconduct or wrongdoing and no disciplinary process has been commenced," a club statement said.
