Gary Deegan has helped Hibs make a strong start to the SPL season.
David Wotherspoon admits being impressed by the performances of Hibs' summer signing Gary Deegan.
Deegan moved to Edinburgh from Coventry in August and has helped Hibs make a solid start to their SPL campaign.
Hibernian are currently second in the table and Wotherspoon said of his fellow midfielder: "The first game of the season when we lost to Dundee United wasn't so good and I think a lot of people feared for us," he told the Edinburgh Evening News.
"But we have recovered well from that and I think the boys who have been brought in are really hard-working.
"Ben Williams has been terrific for us so far, James McPake has been a rock and centrally the manager got Gary Deegan in.
"I think he has proved to be a bit of a good find and he's been very popular with the supporters.
"He's got a lot of fight about him and he's good to play alongside because he has got plenty of instructions and bits of advice to give you. He's a great example and good for everyone around him."
