Cammy Devlin says the roar of the Tynecastle crowd during the Edinburgh derby has left him eagerly anticipating Saturday’s cinch Premiership match with Livingston.
The Australian midfielder, who pulled on a Hearts shirt for the first time in last week’s 2-2 draw at Ross County, was left in awe of the Gorgie atmosphere a few weeks ago and he can’t wait for the Lions to come to town.
Speaking at his pre-match press conference, Cammy said: “The crowd was unbelievable. Something I’ve never experienced before.
“So I’m just counting down the days until Saturday. I’m just really looking forward to getting in front of the home fans and hopefully get on.
“Whether I start or come off the bench, either way I’ll just be buzzing to be in front of the home fans and to get three points is the main thing.”
Cammy has taken no time at all to settle into life at Tynecastle. Savouring the rigorous training regime, he believes that it will make him a better player.
“As soon as I spoke to Hearts I knew it was the right thing to do. I jumped at the opportunity. Being here as just been a confirmation of that. In training you’ve got to build yourself up and it’s a lot different to back home.
“Training is tough and we’re doing a lot of sessions, for me it’s just getting used to the way the gaffer wants to play and gelling with the boys around me.
“Back home we rarely ever did a double session and here we’ve got a couple of them a week. For me, it’s tough and you’ve got to get used to it. I’ve just got to look after myself as much as I can, which I have been.
“I just know it’s going to make me a better player so if that’s what it takes then I’ll do everything I can to keep myself in the best shape. With the players and staff around, I just know it’s going to make me a better player.
“I’m well convinced it was the right decision and it’s just about me making the most of the opportunity I’ve been given.”
