RANGERS star Greg Docherty has returned to Ibrox following his loan stint at Hibs.

The Easter Road side revealed this morning that their four loan players had returned to their parent clubs following the termination of the Scottish Premiership season.

A club statement read: "Hibernian FC can confirm that our four on-loan players have returned to their parent clubs following the formal conclusion to season 2019-20.

"Greg Docherty, Jason Naismith, Marc McNulty and Stephane Omeonga will report back to Rangers, Peterborough United, Reading and Genoa respectively having each made an important contribution to the club, on and off the pitch, and we thank them for that.

"All four have added something different to the group and were very popular members of the dressing room in their own way.

"Greg is a model professional, with maturity beyond his years. Jason has shown unbelievable resilience and, even after suffering his injury, was an important presence around the training ground and Easter Road on matchdays.

"Marc and Stephane, of course, already had that strong relationship with the supporters from their initial loan spells and it was a pleasure to work with them again."

Hibs finished the season in seventh place after St Johnstone leapfrogged the Edinburgh outfit on a points per game basis.

Docherty now returns to Ibrox where he will aim to impress Steven Gerrard when pre-season begins.

He added: "Thank you to everyone @HibernianFC for the opportunity and experience during my time at the club.

"It was a brilliant dressing room to be part of! All the best in the future."
