Gorgie boy McGill extends Hearts deal

1st March 2022

Scott McGill says he "couldn't ask for more" after becoming the latest player to commit his future to Hearts, penning a new deal until the summer of 2023. 

The 20-year-old midfielder has been a smash hit for Airdrieonians in League One this season in his first loan spell away from Tynecastle. Our academy graduate has registered a number of goals and assists, including a memorable strike on his debut for the Diamonds in a Lanarkshire derby trumph over Motherwell. 

Born and bred in Gorgie, Scott says he's relishing the chance to stake a claim for a first team place at his boyhood heroes - but first on the agenda is hopefully clinching promotion at the Excelsior Stadium as the League One campaign stampedes towards it's conclusion.

“I’m absolutely delighted. I’ve been on loan at Airdrie, working as hard as I can to get a new contract. To get it done is great, I’m over the moon," he told heartsfc.co.uk
 
“Being out on loan has been an amazing experience: I’ve scored a few goals and we’re sitting second – hopefully promotion to come as well.
 
“My aim now is to try and finish off on a high note with Airdrie and come back for preseason flying for Hearts and hopefully get into the team.
 
“I’m a Gorgie boy, so I can’t ask for much more.”
