Injury Update: Craig Halkett

01 March 2023

The defender was an early casualty during the Jambos’ 2-2 draw with Dundee United on Christmas Eve after being forced off the pitch inside the opening five minutes at Tannadice.

A subsequent scan has revealed that the 27-year-old has damaged his cruciate, which will sideline him for the rest of the current campaign.

Speaking to the Official Hearts Website, manager Robbie Neilson said: “It’s obviously very disappointing news to lose Craig’s services for the remainder of the season.

“We’re gutted for Craig, first and foremost. He’s been outstanding for the club in recent seasons both on and off the pitch and I’m sure he’ll be back fitter and stronger than ever.

“We’re fortunate enough to have top class medical and sports science teams and facilities at Hearts so Craig will get the best possible care as he rests up and then starts his rehabilitation.”
