Trio to depart Hearts

16 May 2024

Heart of Midlothian can confirm that Peter Haring, Michael McGovern, and Andy Halliday will leave the club upon the expiry of their contracts this summer.


Each of the departing players have been excellent servants to the club and will move on to the next stage in their careers with the best wishes and thanks of everyone at Hearts.


Peter Haring, of course, is held in deep affection following his six years at Tynecastle; helping the men in maroon to the Scottish Cup final in 2019, our promotion campaign in 2021 and as the club secured two third place finishes in 2021/22 and 2023/24.


Supporters will have the chance to pay tribute to the departing players following Saturday’s cinch Premiership match with Rangers, as well as celebrate the end to a fantastic season which has seen the club clinch third place in the table, European football for the third season in a row for the first time ever, and guaranteed group stage European football.


At full time the first team and coaching staff will head into the dressing room before returning shortly after to form a guard of honour for the departing players. The squad and coaching staff will then partake in a lap of honour, heading left in the direction of the Main Stand/Gorgie Stand and then making their way around the pitch.


This is an opportunity for fans and players to show their appreciation of each other and we encourage supporters to remain inside the stadium at full time to take part.
