New contracts for management team

28 July 2022

The management team, fresh from leading the club back into Europe, have pledged their futures to Hearts on the eve of the 2022/23 cinch Premiership season by signing three-year-deals.

It’s been a successful two-years to date for the trio since they came to the club back in June 2020. Their first season saw a return to the top flight at the first time of asking after winning the Championship title with a 12-point lead at the top of the table.

The following season saw continued progression as the Jambos raced to a third-place finish in the cinch Premiership, securing guaranteed group stage European football in the process, and reaching the Scottish Cup Final for the third time in four years.

Now on the eve of a historic campaign, the management team have committed their futures to Hearts and will lead the club into both domestic and European football.  

Speaking to the Official Hearts Website, CEO Andrew McKinlay said: “Everyone at Hearts is delighted that Robbie, Gordon and Lee have committed their long-term futures to the club.

“The progress the first-team has made in a short space of time is unquestionable and that is in no small part due to the talents, professionalism and determination of the coaching staff.

“They have raised standards on the park and the entire club has reaped the benefits as we shape up for one of the biggest seasons in the Hearts’ history, and I cannot think of a better trio to lead us into it.”

Sporting Director Joe Savage said: “A tremendous amount of hard work has been undertaken over the past two-years and the results are plain for all to see.

“There has been an improvement in playing style, in performances and, most importantly, in results and Robbie, Gordon and Lee have been integral to that.

“Their professionalism is second to none and anyone lucky enough to have watched them in action will have seen how meticulous they are in everything they do, and that has helped this club return to the top of the Scottish game.

“With a settled and very talented playing squad and coaching staff, I’m excited to see where this group can take us next and I’m sure the fans will be too.”
