JJ Bull of The Telegraph has been speaking about midfielder Greg Docherty following his superb goal for Hibernian against Kilmarnock, suggesting that he has not been given a chance at parent club Rangers.
The 23-year-old is currently on loan at Easter Road until the end of the season, an environment Bull believes he is thriving in due to the free role he has been given by manager Jack Ross.
Speaking on The Totally Scottish Football Show podcast (18/02/2020), Bull said: “He’s not really been given a chance at Rangers at all, but I think he’d be much more trying to adhere to a system and a role within that Rangers team if he’s coming into that midfield because of the designated roles they have in that midfield.
“I think at Hibs he’s given a slightly more free role and I think it’s the kind of thing that he flourishes in.”
Indeed, it seems that Docherty is flourishing following that strike against Kilmarnock as Hibs close in on Livingston in fifth in the Scottish Premiership table.
Has Ryan Kent looked anywhere near worth £7m?
Though with the former Scotland U21 international thriving at Rangers’ rivals Hibs, with the two sides featuring in that incredible 2016 Scottish Cup final at Hampden Park which ended in chaos after the latter claimed a 3-2 win, you could not blame any supporter of the Glasgow outfit for being disappointed seeing him play his football there.
But after barely featuring for the Gers (0 league appearances this term), which Bull touched on, the most important thing is that he is in an environment where he can get minutes and continue to develop.
