Former Hibs loanee Greg Docherty is weighing up his options amid reports Hull City are set to make an offer for the Rangers midfielder.

The 23-year-old joined the Easter Road side on loan in January as part of the deal that saw Florian Kamberi head to Ibrox on a temporary basis, but doesn’t look likely to force his way into Steven Gerrard’s first-team plans this season and as such could leave the Gers before the transfer window shuts.

Hibs have been linked with the player throughout the summer, and he is admired by both head coach Jack Ross and sporting director Graeme Mathie after impressing during his temporary stay in the Capital.

The midfielder scored three goals and laid on five for his team-mates during an eight-game spell in green and white.

Docherty also caught the eye during a season-long loan spell with Shrewsbury Town in the 2018/19 season and Salop boss Sam Ricketts would be keen on a reunion with the former Hamilton youngster, but there are a host of clubs in England interested in securing the player’s services.

Tigers boss Grant McCann is expected to put in a bid for Docherty, whose Rangers contract expires in the summer of 2022.

Hull were relegated to England’s League One after finishing bottom of the 2019/20 Championship, just five points from safety.

The Hibees also remain keen on Docherty’s Ibrox team-mate Ross McCrorie, who spent last season on loan at Portsmouth. The Fratton Park side remain keen on the versatile midfielder.
