Darren McGregor is very much coming to the end of his playing career, and even though I hope I am wrong, I doubt he will play many games next season. IMO we will need another central defender. David Gray also has big fitness problems, Tom James will likely be away soon, which leaves us with Paul McGinn. I think McGinn is fine at right-back, but IMO we really do need better in both full-back positions as Lewis despite being very fit is not getting any younger. Ben Stirling will definitely be pushing his way into the first team reckoning very soon, and the good thing about him is his versatility. He can play defensive midfield, right-back or central defence.Defence is a weird one, only position we actually lack depth in is LB. we have 4 first team CB with possibly a 5th if Ben Stirling makes the step up, 2 RBs in Gray (albeit his fist was concerns) and mcginn then only really Lewis at LB with Mackie who don’t think will cut it sadly and possibly young Josh Doig as back up. Overall a decent players but as someone said above it just doesn’t click anymore at the back. Hopefully with the extra cover from Gogic we will see improvements even if the defence isn’t strengthened further
I wouldn't mind seeing another experienced midfield guy in as well. I suggested Stephen McGinn who is out of contract and was training with us recently. I know that won't meet with much approval by many Hibs fans, but he was Jack Ross's captain at St Mirren when they won the Championship and we definitely need leaders in the team. At 31 I reckon he could do a decent job for a year or two.
