Duo mentored by Andy Murray signs long-term deal with Hibernian FC

Scot Andy Murray believes that fellow compatriots and promising Hibernian FC youngsters, Ryan Porteous and Fraser Murray, will both have great careers. The two 19-year-olds are both managed by three-time Grand Slam champion Murray's 77 Sports Managament agency.

Porteous and Murray have both recently signed long-term deals with Hibernian as the deals tie them with the Scottish side until 2023. Hibernian's Porteous and Murray are mentored by two-time Olympic champion Murray as they can always turn to the Scot when needed an advice.

Former world No. 1 Murray has mentioned several times how much he enjoys mentoring younger players. Murray has been a Hibernian supporter since his childhood days. Ryan and Fraser have come up through the academy at Hibs and I know everyone at the club thinks very highly of them.

"Ryan and Fraser have come up through the academy at Hibs and I know everyone at the club thinks very highly of them," Murray said. "It's great to be involved in helping them both realise their potential, I'm convinced both will go on to have great careers." Hibernian coach Neil Lennon was full of praise when speaking of his two promising youngsters.

"When you have two young players in your team you want them to be here for as long as they can be, especially if they are fantastically talented like Ryan and Fraser are," Lennon said. Also read: Andy Murray set to play Marseille in February
