Hearts manager Csaba Laszlo today revealed that goalkeeper Steve Banks is set to move into a goalkeeper coaching role with the youth team.

The English stopper is not involved for the Tynecastle side at Ibrox where Hearts take on Rangers at 3pm.


Jamie MacDonald is selected between the sticks, whilst new goalkeeper Marian Kello is on the bench.

Csaba told Hearts.TV, "Today Steve is not available. Steve has as new job. He has a new agreement with the sport director and with the owner.

"The decision has been made to play Jamie in goal and in the future Steve Banks will be the new goalkeeper coach. He will be on the training staff."

Having earlier expressed a desire for Steve Bank's role at the club to be clarified - player or coach - the Tynecastle boss is pleased to have reached a conclusion.

"We must make a decision and now the owner is here and we have made a very clear decision and I think a very good decision for everybody," he added.
