“I’ll see if he picks me, it was only my second full game this season after my injury.

“I felt good, even if it was a bit harder in the last 15 minutes.”

Boyata has battled back from a knee injury sustained in the July 4 friendly against Slavia Prague to quickly re-establish himself in boss Brendan Rodgers ‘ plans.

The former Manchester City star added: “It’s never easy to come back from an injury.

“I was still a bit worried, because I’m still not 100 per cent fit, but it’s a good feeling to be back.”

The 26-year-old back-four operator is likely to team up again with Jozo Simunovic when Neil Lennon brings his Hibs team to Glasgow for tomorrow’s Premiership game.
