Stephen McGinn has penned a deal until the end of the season at Hibs this week ahead of the match with Rangers this weekend.
Both teams are in great form heading into this one. The visiting Rangers are yet to concede a goal this term whilst Hibs haven’t conceded from open play, so something may have to give on Sunday for three points to be won.
Before Jack Ross welcomes Rangers to Leith, he’s brought in someone he knows well. McGinn will make it a family treble, becoming the third McGinn after John and Paul to sign for Hibs.
The midfielder worked with Ross at St Mirren and has been looking for a club since leaving the Buddies in the summer. Ross had him working in the background over the last few weeks but now brings him into first-team plans.
Manager Ross says McGinn will add lots around the club: “For me, Stephen adds a lot to the group and the environment at HTC. You can never have enough good professionals with leadership qualities and we’re fortunate, as I’ve said repeatedly, to have a great core of those at Hibernian.”
McGinn added: “It means a lot to me to have signed for Hibernian and it goes without saying that no-one needs to explain the size of the club to me. John and Paul have thrived here and it’s a privilege to get the chance to play my part as well.”
