New Hibs Owner Ron Gordon Says His Ambition is to Win the Premiership Title

New Hibs Owner Ron Gordon Says His Ambition is to Win the Premiership Title

New Hibs owner Ronald Gordon has insisted his ambition is to win the Premiership title, as his era in charge of the Easter Road club gets underway.

As we told you yesterday, the US-based businessman has taken control of Hibs from previous owners Sir Tom Farmer and Rod Petrie, and pledged a ‘seven-figure’ investment into the club upon his arrival.

And it seems the ambitious 64-year-old has his sights set on toppling the Old Firm and ending Celtic’s dominance of Scottish football.

Speaking in an interview via the Sun, Gordon explained: “Getting to the top of the Premiership is a big ask but it is totally an ambition.

“It needs to be an ambition and we should never give up on that ambition.

“It would be great for Scottish football if that happened.

“I don’t know how we will do that yet as I am still learning.

“I don’t think it is necessarily a good thing that a club like Celtic wins every year. It does not do the game any good.

“It’s great for Celtic  but I think it would be good for the game to have a more competitive league.

“It is not unusual in many countries that there are two or three clubs who dominate and then you have the middle group.

“Hibs are very solid in the top half and I think we need to be in the top three every year. That has to be our goal.”

Current Hibs manager Paul Heckingbottom has already been spending a few quid in the current transfer window, with the £350,000 capture of Welsh striker Christian Doidge the highlight arrival so far, but we’re sure a boost to the coffers from Gordon would be more than welcomed by the club’s coaching staff.

But what do you think of the ambitious aim set out by Gordon? Could he really lead Hibs to Premiership glory?
