Hibs getting respect


COLINNISH reckons Hibernian are now getting the Old Firm treatment from their league rivals following their blistering start to the season.

Hibs go into today’s game with Motherwell just two points behind leaders Celtic after putting together a ninematch unbeaten run.

Striker Nish said: “I suppose we’re just finding out what it’s like for Rangers and Celtic.

“Teams probably change their tactics and sit behind the ball a wee bit more than they usually do against other teams.”

Meanwhile, Merouane Zemmama insists he has no intention of quitting Hibs after being linked to French sides Valen-ciennes and Lens.

“This club means a lot to me. I became a profession­al foot ball playe r here and they’ve helped me overcome some problems and shown great kindness to me,” he said.
