Hibs manager Lee Johnson has been speaking to the media before the Scottish Cup derby with Hearts this weekend.

Here are the key points from the press conference:

  • Amid a poor run of form and the “hurt” of the 3-0 new year derby defeat at Tynecastle, Hibs now have a chance to “spin everything back in a really positive light”.

  • Hibs are “desperate” to beat Hearts and are in the cup to win it.

  • Johnson says Ryan Porteous is “absolutely focused” on the match despite clubs including Blackburn and Udinese vying for the defender’s signature.

  • On whether it will be Porteous’ last game, Johnson adds: “I honestly don’t know. As far as I’m aware he is still under contract and nothing is sorted or close to it.”
