Tigers check out Socceroos striker

Hull City

Hull City could be on the trail of Jamie Maclaren after a scout saw the on-loan Hibernian striker impress against Hearts on Friday.

The Championship club were represented in the stands at Easter Road for the Scottish Premiership clash with Maclaren taking centre stage.

The Australia international hit the crossbar with a superb effort in the 65th minutes before capping Hibs’ 2-0 derby win with a fine individual goal.

Receiving the ball from a long throw, Maclaren fought off three Hearts defenders as he turned inside the box and squeezed his shot past the goalkeeper.

He joined Hibs in January to boost his World Cup squad chances after making only seven substitute appearances for Darmstadt in the German second division.

Maclaren is known to be a good friend of Tigers midfielder Jackson Irvine with both players hailing from Melbourne.

The 24-year-old scored 20 goals in each of his past two completed seasons in the A-League with Brisbane Roar.
