Former Norwich City and Scotland goalkeeper David Marshall has announced his playing retirement to become part of Malky Mackay’s football operations staff at Hibernian.

The 39-year-old has called time on a career that saw him make 670 first-team appearances and win 47 international caps to be Hibernian’s technical performance manager, under sporting director Mackay.

Marshall spent two seasons at Carrow Road but was part of the squad relegated to League One in 2009 before moving onto Cardiff, where he won the Championship and was part of the Bluebirds' squad that reached a League Cup final.

The experienced keeper became a Scottish national hero when his shoot-out save against Serbia sealed qualification for Euro2020, and ended a 23-year wait for an appearance at a major tournament.

Marshall started all three matches at the finals before joining Hibs in 2022, playing 86 times for the club and captaining the team for a season.

He has a master’s degree in Sports Directorship and previously joined the board of the Hibernian Community Foundation.

“Having made the decision to retire from football, I’m delighted to be given the opportunity in this role at the football club,” he said, quoted by PA. “I’ve got to know and understand the club over the last two seasons and I look forward to working closely with Malky Mackay to create an environment which can deliver success both on and off the pitch.

“This new role is a great opportunity for me to work across various different performance departments within the football club and to learn from Malky who has years of experience in the game.

“The fans’ support will be vital to our success and I know, as always, you’ll be there for the team, David Gray and his coaching staff. I am looking forward to getting started for the 2024/25 campaign.”
