Hibernian had some good news for their fans on Friday when it was announced that Josh Doig signed a new long-term contract with the Edinburgh club.

The teenager has signed a deal that will keep him at Easter Road until 2025. Doig has been a regular under manager Jack Ross this season, making 23 appearances so far.

Recently scored first goal of the season

He is currently in a good run of form, as in the recent game against Hamilton he had a goal and an assist in a 2-0 win. That was his first goal of the season, and his third assist. A good return for a left-back.

Doig made his Hibernian debut last season, but this season he has really made a first-team spot his own. There seems to be no reason why the player can’t be a mainstay in the Hibernian side for years to come.

Doig’s form vindicates Ross’ decision to put faith in the teenager. The player has been a real bright spot for the Easter Club this season, and you have to imagine that the player will be a contender for all the young player awards at the end of the season.

Fans seem delighted

Hibs fans are delighted with the news that Doig has committed his future to Hibernian.
