Hibs sign Docherty on loan from Rangers

Last updated : 31 January 2020 By Steve Forbes

Hibs have secured their third signing of transfer deadline day by securing a loan deal for Rangers midfielder Greg Docherty.

Docherty signs until the end of the season, and it also means Hibs striker Florian Kamberi heads to Ibrox on loan.

The Hibees beat off competition from Sunderland, Shrewsbury Town and Charlton Athletic to land the midfield dynamo.

Speaking to the official site, Docherty said:

“I’m pleased to have got this loan move over the line and I’m really hungry to get going.

“I had the chance to go back to England and I appreciate the clubs who made an effort to get me but I feel like I know Hibernian and it was an opportunity I was really keen to take as soon as I heard about their interest.

“I’ve not played as often as I would have liked in the last few months but I’ve been pushing myself to be as fit as I can be and I’ll be ready as soon as the gaffer tells me he needs me.”

Another brilliant signing by the Hibees.

What an incredible transfer window it's been.

Docherty, Omeonga, McNulty, Bogdan, McGinn all arriving, hopefully we might see one more before the window closes at midnight.
