During his time at Easter Road Stadium, McGeouch became a fans’ favourite due to his performances, but also the on-field success which followed, as the Glasgow born midfielder helped Hibernian to the memorable Scottish Cup victory in 2016, the Ladbrokes Championship title in 2017 and being part of the side that finished fourth on Hibernian's return to the top-flight in season 2017/18.

McGeouch started his youth career at Celtic but left to join Rangers in 2008 after his brother was released by the Parkhead club. Three years later, then Celtic boss Neil Lennon convinced McGeouch to return to Celtic having seen his undoubted quality. Rangers were later awarded £100,000 from a tribunal in relation to McGeouch's transfer.

That same year, Lennon handed McGeouch his first-team debut and he scored his first goal in just his second senior appearance; a fantastic solo effort against St Mirren at Celtic Park. McGeouch picked up the ball up on the edge of the Celtic box, ran the length of the entire pitch and unleashed a confident finish, low, into the bottom left corner. That goal was named Celtic’s goal of the season for the 2011/12 campaign.

But his potential remained largely untapped as McGeouch struggled with injuries. In 2014, the midfielder was loaned to Coventry before being loaned out to Hibernian prior to the 2014/15 season.

McGeouch signed for the Leith side permanently in 2015 and despite his injury troubles, McGeouch helped Alan Stubbs’ Hibernian win the Scottish Cup in 2016, playing the full game in their final victory over Rangers.

McGeouch was reunited with Lennon in 2016 when he succeeded Stubbs. Under Lennon's stewardship, McGeouch helped Hibs win promotion to the Scottish Premiership.

It was the 2017/18 season where McGeouch really came to the fore, remaining injury-free as he starred in the Hibs side that qualified for next season’s Europa League.

Having represented Scotland at youth level, he made his debut for the national side in May 2018 against Peru as a reward for his dependable form. McGeouch went on to win another Scotland cap whilst with Hibernian, which was awarded against Mexico four days on from his international debut.

McGeouch also won the Hibernian's Player of the Year and Players’ Player of the Year awards in his last season with Hibernian, owing to his stellar farewell campaign with the Leith side.

Dylan McGeouch thereafter joined Sunderland following the expiry of his deal at Hibernian.
