When Hibs will see the best of Rangers loanee Jamie Murphy

Jamie Murphy will hit top form once he has had a consistent run of games, says Hibs boss Jack Ross.

The Rangers loanee’s spell at Easter Road has been a little stop-start, with a hamstring injury sidelining him for the best part of a month.

However, the 31-year-old is getting back to full fitness and laid on an assist during Hibs’ 4-1 win over Dundee in the Betfred Cup.

Ross has sympathy with the Scotland internationalist’s time at Hibs and expects him to get better the more games he plays.

"The thing with Jamie, I think it's been a bit stop-start for him, but we are challenging him to score and provide assists – that's why we worked hard to bring him to the club,” said Ross. “I think it's about getting a consistent run of games for him and undoubtedly he will keep doing what he did today and create opportunities and I think he'll get on scoresheet soon.”
