Hibs to play tough over Murphy
David Murphy hails the Hibs fans
Murphy could be waving goodbye to Easter Road next month
Tommy Craig expects Hibernian to hold out for a large fee should they agree to sell left-back David Murphy.

The former Middlesbrough player has been linked with Celtic, Rangers and several English top-flight outfits.

But caretaker manager Craig said: "With David Murphy, we know that clubs are going to be looking at him.

"If David Murphy does leave Easter Road in the not too distant future, I am pretty sure it will have to be a helluva offer."

BBC Sport understands that no concrete bids have been received for the player, who missed Wednesday's defeat by Kilmarnock through injury.


But that is likely to change once the transfer window opens on 1 January.

And it is believed that manager John Collins resigned last week because he would not be given a substantial chunk of the proceeds of any sale to rebuild his side.

"I would like to think, as long as I am still here, he will be here," said Craig, who has applied for the managerial vacancy and hopes a decision will be made soon.

"You saw how good a player he was against Celtic and that is the norm.

"He is a first-class full-back and the fact he is left-footed makes it more special."
