Hibernian boss Jack Ross has been impressed with Jamie Murphy’s recent performances for the Easter Road club. The winger has scored two goals in his last three games, and was the match-winner in the Betfred Cup last 16 win over Dundee.
Ross was impressed with Murphy’s goal in that game, and his overall performance as well.
“Reflective of how he’s played”
“Jamie’s two touches and his final bit of quality finish is excellent, and that’s been reflective of how he’s played in recent matches as well” Ross said, regarding Murphy’s performance against Dundee.
The Hibernian boss then went on to address the on-loan Rangers man’s performances overall this season.
“I think what we’ve seen in recent weeks is the benefit of him playing consistently. He had an early game where he was ineligible because it was Rangers, then he had the little injury. This is the first time he’s really been in a consistent run of games. His career history points to the fact that he can handle that, because of obviously his time in England where you have to churn out a lot of matches” Ross begun.
Player is responding to challenge
Ross then opened up on a challenge he had given to Murphy that the player seems to be answering.
“He’s just looking better and better. The next part was challenging him to provide assists and goals, because that’s what he’s done throughout his career. If you look back at our last three or four games, he’s done that in every game. Good for me that he just seems to be getting better with each passing match” he concluded.
