Martin Boyle has won himself kind words from Australia assistant boss Rene Meulensteen – but the Aussie coach is also tipping him for Celtic and Rangers-type moves.
The Hibs winger has proven himself worthy in the big games this season. He was a useful tool in the 2-2 draw with Celtic on Saturday whilst he grabbed two assists in an earlier Hibs encounter with Steven Gerrard’s men.
He returns to action against St Johnstone on Tuesday night and his form in the last year under Jack Ross hasn’t gone unnoticed.
Boyle has made strides on the international scene down under and has had his name linked to Celtic before, although speculation ended when he penned a new deal at Easter Road.
Meulensteen thinks highly of the winger: “I’m actually surprised that a club like Celtic or Rangers haven’t come in for him because he’s got so much to offer and is doing really well for Hibs right now.
“Martin’s great – he’s full of beans, hard-working, quick, agile and direct.
“He’s got something special about him, he’s not afraid to run at people and has a heart like a lion.
“Martin has had a few injury setbacks, but personality-wise he never stops smiling. He’s a good guy and a very good player.”
