Hibernian manager Pat Fenlon has praised Leigh Griffiths after Sunday's victory over Kilmarnock in the Scottish Cup quarter-finals.

The striker, who is currently on loan from Wolverhampton Wanderers, bagged a hat-trick at Rugby Park as Hibs claimed a 4-2 win.

"Leigh is a special player," Fenlon told Sky Sports News. "It is not just the goals, his movement is different class but I think there were good performances all round."

Hibernian return to Scottish Premier League action next Sunday when they entertain local rivals Hearts.
