Hibs manager Jack Ross has provided an injury update on Rangers loanee Jamie Murphy as he hopes to see him prior to the end of the Scottish Premiership season.

The experienced attacker has endured a stop-start season on loan from Rangers, with his move to Hibs set to be made permanent in the summer. Although unavailable anyway this weekend against his parent club, Murphy would not have been fit for the game.

Ahead of the league match with Rangers at Ibrox on Sunday, manager Ross says he is still struggling with a hamstring injury, although hopes to see him back ‘before the end of the season’: “Jamie Murphy missed the Queen of the South game with a hamstring injury.

“That will rule him out for the foreseeable future. I’m hopeful we will get to see Jamie before the end of the season. He’s been very close to returning a couple of times but it’s in the one or two days before a match he has suffered a reoccurrence.

“It’s frustrating for him and it’s been hard-going for him as he’s determined to make an impact here. He has done that in stages this season but it’s been a frustrating period for him. We need to get to the bottom of it to ensure that when he does come back, he’s good to go.”
