Simon Murray’s 61st minute strike not only doubled Hibs’ lead against Kilmarnock last night but also handed another £500 to charity – all thanks to his new celebration.
We’ll be donating £500 to the Hibernian Community Foundation following Murray’s ‘Simon Says’ goal celebration for Hibs last night in their impressive 3-0 win at Rugby Park.
Murray has now raised a total of £1,000 to date for the Hibernian Community Foundation through his new goal celebration that sees him mimic the famous game ‘Simon Says’ after netting the winner in last week’s Edinburgh Derby and then adding to his tally last night.
We visited the club’s training centre in September to give the striker a Goal Celebration Makeover – with the supporters voting ‘Simon Says’ as their favourite celebration on social media.
Murray’s goal rush has come at a perfect time for not only the Hibernian Community Foundation but also the club with Hibs now sitting comfortably in 3rd place after three straight wins in the Scottish Premiership.

Each time the striker performs the celebration during a match after scoring, we’ll donate a further £500 to the local Edinburgh charity.
Fans will be keeping an eye out for ‘Simon Says’ with Neil Lennon’s men looking to continue their fine form.
Last year supporters voted to re-vamp Grant Holt’s celebration with the popular ‘Incredible Holt’ effort. Holt went on to score and perform his new stunt against Hearts in the cup, as well as in league games against St Mirren and Raith.
Murray’s Edinburgh Derby celebration:
The Incredible Holt raised a total of £2,500 for charity. Murray is well on his way to out doing his predecessor this season!
After the match, Murray said: “It was good to get a goal away to Kilmarnock, especially after scoring in the derby last week and it’s also a good feeling knowing that £500 is going to charity for the celebration.
“At Rugby Park, I saw a few of the supporters joining in with the celebration when I was doing it on the pitch which was great to see as well.
“The aim for me is to try to score goals to help the team and it’s an added bonus that when I do the ‘Simon Says’ celebration that Marathonbet will donate £500 to the Hibernian Community Foundation – it’s a great combination.”
