Alim named captain

22nd July 2015

Defender handed captain's armband for 2015/16 season.

Robbie Neilson has named Alim Ozturk as his captain for the 2015/16 season.

The centre-half will lead the Jambos on their journey back into the Ladbrokes Premiership, following a record-breaking season taking the Championship by storm.

An integral part of that title-winning side, Alim made 36 appearances last season and scored 4 goals, including an unforgettable 40-yard stoppage time equaliser against Hibs at Easter Road.

Fresh from enjoying a day out at Musselburgh Races, Alim will be speaking to HeartsTV this morning about his pride at being made skipper.
