Hibernian’s Paul McGinn has been a key man for the Edinburgh team this season, in what has been an impressive first few months of the league and Betfred Cup campaign.

The Easter Road side are currently third in the Premiership, and face Alloa in the Betfred Cup quarter-final tonight, only 90 minutes away from a semi-final.

The 30-year-old has been a regular for Jack Ross’ team this season, he has played every minute of Hibernian’s Premiership campaign so far.

Indeed, the right-back feels that he is currently playing the best football of his career.


“Long may that continue”

“It’s probably the sort of years that players come into their best years. I thought I had a really good spell at St Mirren when I was playing really well, and I’ve managed to carry that into Hibs thankfully, and long may that continue hopefully” he said.

One way in which McGinn is showing that he is playing the best football of his career is in his newly found goalscoring ability.

Has scored three goals this season

McGinn has only scored 15 goals in his career, but three have come this season. He is on the verge of beating his best ever goal return in a season. He has scored three goals twice before, but has not yet managed to score four.

McGinn’s most recent goal came in the 4-0 win over Hamilton at the weekend. It is a goal that he seems to be quite pleased with.

“It’s probably one of the better ones. I had a good one for Dundee with the left-foot, a couple down at Chesterfield that were quite nice, but it’s probably up there.”
