Gary back from loan

19th December 2014

Striker returns early from stay at Stenny after impressing.

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.”
