Hibs striker insists Leith club better than Hearts, Celtic and Rangers when it comes to style

Hibs striker Flo Kamberi insists Neil Lennon’s side are playing the best football in the Premiership.

The Easter Road outfit are second in the league, two points adrift of Edinburgh rivals Hearts, but the Swiss insists they are the top-flight’s best entertainers.

Hibs collected a fourth straight league win with a 6-0 thrashing of Hamilton at the weekend and will aim to continue a rich vein of form when they travel to reigning champions Celtic after the international break.

And Kamberi insists the club’s supporter have the added bonus of watching a winning team playing an exciting brand of football.

He said: “We’re not a team playing long balls or for second balls, we can play very well and at the moment I think we’re playing the best football throughout the whole league.

“We produce crosses, have good action offensively – and defensively we have four straight clean sheets.

“There is a lot of work to do, the season is long and it’s early now but hopefully we can keep working like this, scoring goals and keeping clean sheets.

“We’re doing well but we have to continue like this

“Beating Hamilton 6-0 at home is a big win, we could have scored even more but at the end it’s a big three points and now we’re two points away from Hearts.

“The priority is that we win and now we’re close to Hearts.”

Kamberi, who took his tally for the season to six with the fifth strike against Accies, insists Hibs are not bothered if capital counterparts Hearts continue to dominate the headlines.

Speaking to Hibs TV, he added: “It’s good if people don’t speak so much about Hibs, we don’t have to care what people are saying about Hibs.

“We have to care what we do every week on the pitch.

“If other people are talking about teams, we’re playing our game, scoring goals and winning games.

“In the end it’s better we don’t talk a lot and show the performance on the pitch and we’ve done that for four games, so it’s a pleasure to be part of it.”

Hibs midfielder Stevie Mallan took his goals total to nine with a brace against Hamilton, while fellow playmaker Emerson Hyndman also found the net at the weekend.

Kamberi earned close attention from the Hamilton rearguard and admits it is important that his team-mates to take some of the scoring responsibility off him.

He added: “It’s great for a striker, I need my team-mates to score goals too.

“I think we did that well against Hamilton and it was a massive team effort.

“It’s good when you have good midfielder players around you and good players who can give you good delivery.

“It’s difficult for me when the opposition put two players on me, it happens in every game, but it’s better for the team.

“If I contribute create chances and score goals I don’t mind.”
