Striker Gary Oliver has been recalled from his loan spell at Stenhousemuir by head coach Robbie Neilson.
The front man returns to Tynecastle a couple of weeks ahead of schedule, with Robbie having been impressed with the 19-year-old’s performances at Ochilview over the past few months.
Speaking to Hearts News this afternoon, the gaffer said: “We have a few games coming up and need as many players available as possible.
“The loan was good experience for him and I think he enjoyed it. I had him watched and he proved he can comfortably play at that level.
“He’ll now come back to us and it’s time for him to move up another level.”
