Jorge: We're all with Craig

27 December 2022

The Scotland internationalist suffered a double leg break after an incident at Tannadice on Saturday and it has been confirmed he will miss the remainder of the season.

“We’re all devastated,” said Jorge. “He has been amazing for us this season and in past seasons. It is obviously sad news, but we are with him and his family.

“Hopefully he can rest up now and hopefully be back soon. We are a very tight squad. Everyone has each other’s back, so we are with him.”

Jorge came on in the final stages and helped Hearts grab a late equaliser to secure what could well be a crucial point come the end of the season, and he believes Hearts can now improve as we head into the second half of the campaign.

“A lot went on in that game. I thought the boys did well though. We battled well, it wasn’t our best game on the ball, and we had to dig deep to get something from the game which we managed to do.

“That is now a win and a draw since we came back from the break so we can hopefully try and improve on that. Our aim is of course third place and trying to cement that. So, it is important that we go up there and win the game and that is what we will be looking to do.”
