Reading striker Marc McNulty is looking forward to getting started on loan at Hibernian.

The 26-year-old joined the Scottish Premiership side on deadline day on a deal until the end of the season.

McNulty only only joined the Royals in the summer from Coventry City on a four-year contract but scored just once in 15 appearances.

He spent time as a youngster in the academy at Easter Road and is happy to have made his return. He has said, as per Football.London: “You could say this is a second chance to do well here”.

“It’s great feeling, good to be part of the club and I hope we can now turn around results”.

McNulty started his career with spells at Celtic and Hibs before joining Livingston in 2009. He went onto play 122 games for the Lions, scoring 48 goals before moving to England for stints at Sheffield United, Portsmouth and Bradford City.

He then joined Coventry City in July 2017 and became an instant hit at the Ricoh Arena. McNulty scored 28 goals in all competitions last season and helped the Sky Blues gain promotion to League One.

McNulty has opened up about his premature departure from Reading: “The new manager (Jose Gomes) at Reading had come in and said I was free to find something else”.

“That’s football, I’m not the first person it has happened to and I’m sure I won’t be the last. It can be difficult when a change of manager comes in especially when the club maybe doesn’t have a certain philosophy of playing”.
