Heart of Midlothian Football Club can today confirm that club legend John Robertson has returned to Tynecastle to coach the strikers.

Robbo volunteered his services free of charge to the club and manager Gary Locke was only too happy to take up 'The Hammer of Hibs' on his offer.


Speaking to Hearts News, Gary said: "For me it was a no-brainer, I spoke to him about it and he was only too happy to help.

"He's going to be the strikers coach. At the moment it's just once a week but it was something that I felt would be invaluable, especially for the younger strikers at the club.

"To have somebody of that quality and calibre teaching them is great, and this season more than ever we're going to have to try and score goals."

On HeartsTV today, Gary Locke and Callum Tapping's pre-match press conference IN FULL.
