First Team

Currie's delight

Young striker happy to commit his future to Hearts.

Rory Currie insists signing a contract extension with Hearts was an easy decision to make as he bids to establish himself as a first team player.

The 19-year-old striker joined the club in the summer but his performances for the U20s have earned him several appearances for the first team. His efforts were rewarded today with the news that he has penned a contract extension that will see him remain at Tynecastle until 2020.

Speaking to the media ahead of Saturday’s lunch-time clash with Aberdeen, Rory explained why committing his future to the club was a ‘no-brainer’.

“It was an easy decision for me to sign the deal. Since I came here in the summer they’ve been very good to me and the gaffer’s given me a lot of chances since he arrived,” said Rory.

“Obviously Hearts have a reputation of bringing through young players so that persuaded me to come here in the summer. As I said they’ve been really good with me since I got here so I can’t complain.

“Getting into the first team squad has happened very quickly. It’s the sort of thing you’d like to expect would happen but you can never be sure when. But it has so it’s been very good.

“I feel like I’m part of the squad now and the goal is to just keep it going.”
