"We have been working closely with Hibernian FC over the last few years and knew we shared similar values and goals with the club when it comes to mental health, " said founder, Libby Emmerson. "We are passionate about making clubs a safe space for players to be able to open up should they need to talk.

I would hope that by this time on Thursday we will have a clear diagnosis on the injury. â€The 29-year-old has scored five goals in 19 internationals and become a key player for Australia in recent seasons. The Socceroos begin their World Cup campaign against France on November 22 before taking on Tunisia and Denmark. Johnson said: â€œWe are just positive with him, we all live in hope that heâ€™s in a good place. He seems to be moving well, although the scan is showing something, which is why he has gone to the specialist.

Aberdeen winger Jonny Hayes is close to returning from a groin injury but is unlikely to be ready to feature against Hibs in Friday nightâ€™s Scottish Premiership match at Pittodrie.
