With all the talk about Hibernian’s John McGinn and his future including a possible move to Celtic, it should not be forgotten that the Hibernian who dominated the midfield against the Bhoys in the Easter Road side’s 2-1 win over the Hoops was Dylan McGeouch.
The 25-year-old, who was sold by the Bhoys in 2015, seems to have been on a mission to prove that the Hoops were wrong to let him leave the club in the matches between the sides this season – and the Hoops’ mistakes were clear as day as he shone above all.
He was dynamic in midfield, controlling the game and playing far better than the Hoops duo of Scott Brown and Olivier Ntcham, who only a week previously had dominated Rangers.
It is a credit to Hibernian boss Neil Lennon that he has got McGeouch playing so well, and it goes to show that you can still make it big when you leave one of the Old Firm sides.
The big question though, is that would McGeouch fit into the Hoops squad this time around? His contract is up at the end of the season, and it seems highly unlikely that he will be signing a new one.
For a free transfer, the Hoops could do well by offering the player a deal but it is unlikely that he would want to return to the East End of Glasgow.
There is no guarantee that he would start every week for the Bhoys, which is why he left in the first place.
Perhaps the time for the player to return to the Hoops isn’t right, but he has certainly impressed this season.
