Hibernian’s Kyle Magennis continued his return from injury in the weekend 2-0 win over Dundee United. The 22-year-old, who had played 16 minutes on the recent 1-0 loss to Rangers, was featured for a bit longer – 22 minutes – in the win at Tannadice.

Now Magennis is hoping to play more of a part for Jack Ross’ side when they take on St Mirren this evening. Magennis has played in a variety of positions in his career. He has disclosed that he has no real favourite position to play in.

“Done that all through my career”

“I’ve done that all through my career, albeit I’m still young. I’ve played quite a lot of games, I’ve played all over the park” he said.

“Centre midfield, out wide, in the hole, full-back at times, it’s just something I’ve been used to growing up. I enjoy doing it. I’m just happy to be on the park getting some minutes” Magennis mused.

When Hibernian face St Mirren, Magennis will be coming up against his old team, managed by a man he knows well. St Mirren manager Jim Goodwin.

Up against former manager

The Saints go into the game after a memorable 2-1 win over Celtic. Magennis spoke about what Goodwin was like as a manager and as a player. He feels that there is a difference between the two.

“I watched him quite a lot as a player, and he was hard in tackles and shouting a lot. He was actually pretty relaxed as a manager. He was a good guy, good tactics and good man-manager. All the boys liked him at St Mirren, it’s good to see that he’s doing well.”
