Maclaren scores for Hibernian in Edinburgh Derby
Caltex Socceroos striker Jamie Maclaren found the target to help Hibernian to a win over rivals Hearts in the Scottish Premiership overnight.
Maclaren, on loan from German club SV Darmstadt, started and netted his side’s second goal as they secured a hard-fought 2-0 win at Easter Road Stadium.
With just over 10 minutes remaining, the Aussie received the ball from a long throw-in and wriggled clear of three Hearts defenders before sliding a neat finish into the bottom corner.
It was his second goal for Hibernian since joining the club in January and follows his late winner against Scottish giants Rangers in early February.
“I just got the ball, turned, maybe got a bit lucky but I knew where to put it in the bottom corner,” Maclaren told Sky Sports of his goal.
“Thankfully it went in and it was a nice celebration too.”
The Aussie joked his goal wouldn’t have gone down too well with one of his family members, revealing his grandfather is a diehard Hearts supporter.
“He’s watching. I don’t know if he’ll be too happy. I’ll give him a buzz tomorrow morning and see what he’s saying,” Maclaren said.
“It’s a good moment. He’s happy for me and I’m just thankful we got the win.”
