Hibs give update on Ryan Porteous as defender continues injury recovery

Hibs have delivered a promising update on Ryan Porteous, with the 19-year-old centre-back resuming light training at the club's winter training camp in Dubai.

The highly-rated defender sustained an injury in the 1-1 draw with Livingston at Easter Road on December 22, and missed the matches against Rangers at Ibrox and the Edinburgh derby with Hearts at Easter Road at the end of the month.

But the Scotland Under-21 international travelled with the squad to Dubai, and has resumed light training at the emirate’s English Speaking College.
