Hibs sign Marc McNulty on loan

Last updated : 31 January 2019 By Steve Forbes

Hibs have tonight confirmed the signing of Reading striker Marc McNulty.

The 26-year-old joins the Hibees on loan for the rest of the season, after the club failed with bids to land him permanently.

Speaking to the official site, McNulty said:

“I’m delighted to be joining Hibernian and, after leaving the club as a 16-year-old, it does feel a bit like unfinished business.

“I’m definitely coming back a better player for all my experiences south of the border and I’m grateful for all the opportunities I’ve had along the way.

“Coming back home definitely appealed and Hibs were always my first choice.

“I like the way the team tries to play football and I like to think I’ll fit right in.

“As a striker I’m expecting to be judged on the number of goals I score but that’s a pressure I welcome.

“Having not played as much as I would have liked at Reading recently, I’ve missed that expectation and intensity so I’m hoping to be involved as soon as possible and show what I’m all about.

“Beyond the goals, the Hibs supporters should know I’m here to work hard and do whatever it takes to help the team out.

“It feels like it’s been a long time coming and the club worked so hard to get me here.

“They made me feel wanted and that was important. Now I want to repay everyone who made that possible.”

McNulty, of course started his career in the Hibees youth system, before moving to Livingston and the likes of Sheffield United and Coventry City.
