NEIL Lennon insists John McGinn has put another million on his price tag following his wonder-goal against Rangers, writes Alan Temple.

The Scotland internationalist turned in a virtuoso display as the capital club claimed a 2-1 win at Ibrox, capped (right) when he opened the scoring by surging throughthe Rangers midfield and lashed a superb drive beyond goalkeeper Wes Foderingham.

Lennon has revealed that he knew McGinn was destined to grab a goal in Govan after his number two Garry Parker burst into the dressing room raving about his finishing during the warm-up.

And the Hibs head coach was not left disappointed as the reported Celtic, Cardiff and West Ham target shone.

“He positioned himself beautifully and it was a wonderful strike and his all-round game was fantastic,” lauded Lenny.

“He is back to his best and that puts another million pounds on his price tag.

“It was a brilliant goal, and I fancied him to do that Garry Parker (coach) came in before the game and told me ‘John is just lashing them in during the warm-up’.”

Lennon was similarly effusive in his praise of on-loan Celtic midfielder Scott Allan, who enjoyed a classy debut for Hibs after joining for a second spell on deadline day. The Northern Irishman described the showing as “unplayable” on occasion and has told Allan in no uncertain terms that he must replicate that form on a weekly basis as he seeks to kick-start his career at Easter Road - just like he did during the 2014/15 campaign which made his name.

“Scott took real responsibility, his football was excellent and has put down a real marker,” said Lennon.
