Hibernian left-back Josh Doig has built up great confidence from his performance after being on a break from first-team duties.

The game against


was his first appearance in six weeks and he put up an eye-catching performance.

“Being out the team for a while has given me a bit of a rest and I’ve been able to watch Lewi (Stevenson) and Sean Mackie as well and take a bit of their game into mine,”

he said


“It gave me a bit of a breather but it was good to be back at Ibrox and good to know the gaffer has faith in me to chuck me back in for such a big game. I was really pleased.

“Coming in as an 18-year-old is a big thing. I took it well, I took a wee bit of a dip in confidence but I feel I am building that back up and I’m feeling good.”

“I like to think I have got a wee bit of pace,”

Doig said ahead of Wednesday’s visit of Ross County.

“I thought I would take a touch past him and see what happens.

“I was fortunate to get past him but it’s the final ball. When you play against Rangers you are not going to get many chances so when you do get opportunities you need to have that final ball, that killer pass.

“To play at Ibrox against those players was a big occasion. You don’t want to feel the pressure too much but you do get a few butterflies in your stomach before the game. But once you are on the pitch you just play your game and I loved every second.”
