Barrie McKay signs new three-year deal

8th April 2022

Heart of Midlothian Football Club is delighted to announce that Barrie McKay has signed a new long-term contract.

The wing wizard has penned a three-year-deal, which will keep him at Tynecastle Park until 2025.

27-year-old Barrie has become a real fans’ favourite with his displays in a maroon shirt, providing nine assists for his teammates and bagging two goals, one of which – his stunning strike against Livingston – earned him the cinch Premiership Goal of the Month award for March.

He’ll now continue to pull the strings for the Jam Tarts for the next three years, and manager Robbie Neilson spoke of his delight at Barrie staying a Jam Tart.

Speaking to the Official Hearts Website, he said: “I’m really pleased to get this deal done. It’s a real boost for everyone to have Barrie commit his future to the club.

“I knew what we were getting in Barrie when he joined us and he hasn’t disappointed. He seems to get better and better as the weeks go on, so to have him happy, settled and enjoying his football is brilliant.

“I’m excited to see where he can take his game to, and I’m just happy that he’ll be doing it in a maroon shirt.”

Sporting Director Joe Savage said: “I think it’s a real statement of intent from all parties that Barrie has signed a long-term deal with the club.

“We want to keep our best players and challenge at the highest level possible, and to have someone of Barrie’s pedigree decide that this is the place where he wants to play his football speaks volumes about where the club is and where its going.

“I have to give a big thanks to Gareth at FullNinety for helping to get this deal done, and to Andrew, Ann and our board for backing us and being fully on board with our vision for this club.”
