Doig has said: “I absolutely adore it here at Hibs. You can see with the likes of John McGinn…I know Hibs is a great pathway to go to higher places but it is still a massive club in itself. We could finish third this season!

“I don’t think there’s a better place than Hibs to develop as a player. I know that myself as I have come on so much. Being here is good for me.”

Hibs have managed to tie him down to a contract until 2025 to fend off potential interest.

The Scotland youth international returned to Hibs ahead of this season and has since been a regular for Jack Ross’ side and has made 31 appearances in all competitions, chipping in with four assists.

His breakthrough hasn’t gone unnoticed and he is a name to keep an eye out for over the coming years.
