Hibs new signing Simon Murray is delighted to have opened his account for the club in yesterday’s 2-2 draw with Sunderland at Easter Road.

The 25-year-old moved from Dundee United in the summer and he loves being at the club where his father played in the early 1980s.

What made it even more special for Murray was the fact that his goal came in Lewis Stevenson’s testimonial, a player he admired as an opponent.

After the game Murray told Hibs TV: “I’m obviously delighted to get off the mark on a good occasion as well. It was an honour to play in Lewis’s testimonial. He is a great professional. He’s like a terrier, getting stuck in all the time and you never get an easy game against him. I’m just glad he’s in my team now.

“Obviously pre-season is all about getting your fitness levels up, but it’s important as well to get on the scoresheet.

“Two games in and I’ve done that, so I’m delighted. I’m not at my fittest yet but I always give 100% every game.

“I’ve loved every minute so far. The training so far has been brilliant. The manager is demanding and gets the best out of the players.

“The guys have been very welcoming as well so I am just really enjoying being here. It’s a great place to play football.”
