Jamie Murphy is looking to take Hibs as high as he can after a knee injury with Rangers curtailed his progress at the club he grew up supporting.

The 31-year-old has been a regular at Easter Road this season following a loan move from Rangers at the start of the season. It’s with a view to a permanent deal this summer as Jack Ross’ men push for European football, currently sitting third in the Scottish Premiership.

Murphy picked up a season-ending knee injury at Rangers during the 2018/19 season and he’s hoping to make up for lost time in Leith: “I am as hungry as ever. We have a great chance of getting into Europe and hopefully finishing third this year.

“We’re fighting it out with a couple of other teams. I want Hibs to reach the highest point they can, I want to be a part of that. But for me I had that bad injury and missed maybe two years of probably playing so it’s about playing football for me now.

 

“I enjoy it, I love doing it and I want to do the best I can. Hopefully I can play until 35-plus but you never know. I am going to try and stick it out for as long as I can. The door is shut at Rangers and I am happy for them.

“But for me it is all about Hibs know, how can I help the team. Getting older, I’m starting to think about other things. I’m doing coaching badges. I’m doing a couple of online learning things, trying to prepare the best you can for what’s coming but first things first, I want to be successful at Hibs.”
