Former Hibs star Momodou Bojang has contacted PFA Scotland after claiming he was treated “worse than an animal” during his time at Easter Road.

The Hibees announced yesterday that the Gambian star was returning to his parent club, Rainbow FC – having played just 47 minutes across seven substitute appearances for the club.

Bojang has now hit out at his treatment at the club, as he shared a now-deleted interview on Gambian outlet GamFoot Transfers on his Instagram account along with a video of his accommodation.

Hibs have refused to comment since that interview but SunSport understands that the flat in question was chosen to help him get to training as the player can’t drive.

The interview read: “The club is trying to act like I am a bad player with their statement. I was treated worse than an animal.

“They cut my salary and added strange taxes because they didn’t want to pay me. “I was given a tiny room as an apartment. A very small bed as you have in a prison cell.

“I used to walk to the training ground from where I live while every player was given a beautiful apartment and car.

“I used to cry myself to sleep.

“The coach would always shout on my from day 1 and acted as (if) he never wanted me here.

“They forced eye to terminate my deal with them, my agent didn’t help me or fight for me because he was given a commission by the club when I came, so he rather helps the club than me.

“They are even right now trying to kick me out from the apartment I am staying at.

“I have contacted PFA to help me with my case because this is too much. I will involve FIFA as well.”

PFA Scotland chief executive confirmed that the player had been in touch, telling the Daily Record:  “Momodou did contact the PFA and the issue has now been passed to our lawyers.

“It would be inappropriate to comment further at this time.”

Lee Johnson said that the player had essentially been at the club on a “loan spell”.

He told the club website: “We brought Momodou to the club after impressing for The Gambia’s U23s to see whether we could open an avenue into the African academies because they produce very good players. This loan spell was essentially a trial for him, and for us.

“We felt that he did ok, but ultimately, we didn’t see him going on to affect our first team, which is why we brought the loan spell to an end. We wish him all the best for the future.”
