Simon Murray was a strange case. I don't think I have ever heard a Hibs manager rave about a potential new signing as Neil Lennon did about Murray before he brought him in. He couldn't wait to get him in the door. Despite playing well and scoring several goals including some absolute crackers, within a few months he was not starting games and then in the January window he was punted out on loan to Dundee. I could never understand why Lennon had such a change of opinion about the lad, specially as IMO he had been quite impressive in the games he played. He was pacy, skilful, energetic, hard working, and certainly had an eye for goal.
Question is would Ross want four strikers for his squad ? I certainly wouldn't want to see Gullan loaned out again. Murray also suffered a serious cruciate ligament knee injury when he was playing in South Africa. That would be a concern.
I liked him as a player, and normally I am not keen to see former players coming back. Every window there always seems to be rumours about former Hibs players returning or a clamour from fans to get someone back who was here before. My thoughts are that If we could afford to bring him in to compete for a forward spot with our other strikers then fine. It gives us another forward option. He would add further goal threat and pace and energy, however IMO we really do need to prioritise on improving our defence before bringing in another striker.
