The talismanic forward, who signed a new contract this summer following a failed £500,000 bid from Aberdeen, has scored in each of his side’s opening four league games, the first Hibs player to do so in a top-flight season since Jim Scott in 1964/65.

Boyle’s form has helped the Easter Road side to the top of the Premiership standings, ahead of Hearts on goal difference, who they face at Tynecastle this weekend in the first Edinburgh derby of the season.

Boyle said: “I’m really proud to win the Player of the Month award, it means a lot to me.

“I’ve been working hard on the training pitch to help the team and I’m glad it’s paid off.

“We have big ambitions as a football club and a big game on Sunday, so all our focus is on that and hopefully I can continue to help the team.”
