Former Rangers midfielder Greg Docherty says the ‘best is still to come’ from him at Hull City following his summer transfer [Hullcitytigers.com].
The 24-year-old left Ibrox in August in a deal worth a reported £400,000 [Hull Daily Mail], signing a three-year contract with the Tigers.
Everyone at Rangers thanks Greg for his dedication and professionalism, we wish him every success at Hull City and in the future.

He’s since played almost every minute of his new club’s opening five EFL League One fixtures and has received rave reviews from supporters.
However, Grant McCann’s side’s perfect start to the season came to an abrupt end when they lost 4-1 to Fleetwood Town last Friday night and Docherty believes that he still has more to offer his manager.
“I’m enjoying playing for this team and being part of this club and I’ve settled in really well,” he told Hullcitytigers.com. “From the moment I came here, I’ve felt welcome and we’ve got a great group of boys here who are all pushing in the right direction which is something you want to jump on and we’re all there to help each other week in, week out.”
“I think the best is still to come from me and I’ll always set myself high standards. We win as a group but I feel as if I’ve still got more to give to this team and I hope to do that as soon as possible.
“We’re still in a good position and we’ll need to keep winning games to keep on building so we can stay up the right end of the table, as that’s where we want to be.”
Former Rangers midfielder Greg Docherty says there’s more to come from him at Hull – Verdict
Many Hull fans were delighted when their club snapped up Docherty on a permanent deal during the summer and he’s quickly become an important member of the starting XI.
He’s yet to contribute a goal or an assist for his new club, though, and that will be one of the areas in which he’s looking to improve.
During his previous stint in League One with Shrewsbury Town across the 2018/19 season, he bagged seven goals and eight assists and his manager will be delighted if he finishes the current campaign with similar numbers.
The lifelong Rangers fan may be able to catch some of the Old Firm early on Saturday afternoon, but his focus will be on Hull, with the Tigers taking on Rochdale in the league at 3pm.
