Barrie can't wait to play in front of Hearts fans

7th September 2021

Barrie McKay says he can’t wait to have the Hearts fans cheering him on instead of jeering his name.

The winger signed a two-year deal with the Jambos today, ending a four-year stay in English football.

Familiar with the Tynecastle atmosphere, having played in Gorgie with former team Rangers, the 26-year-old knows all about the passionate backing from the stands and he can’t wait to have the fans on his side.

Speaking to Hearts TV, he said: “Hearts is the right club for me because of the size of the club, the way that they want to play and I’ve played here before.

“The fans are brilliant. They’re on your back if you’re on the opposition team but they get right behind their players.

“The fans will get behind you instead of getting on to you. It’ll definitely be a different experience but it’s one that I’m looking forward to.

“The manager and the way the club wants to go is a project that I want to be a part of.”
