Steven Naismith has been named as Heart of Midlothian’s new club captain.
Manager Daniel Stendel has picked the vastly experienced Scotland forward to be his leader, with John Souttar vice captain, and Naisy will now wear the armband as the Jambos enter into a new era.
Speaking to the heartsfc.co.uk about his new role, Naisy said: “I’m delighted that the manager has decided to make me club captain.
“It’s a big thing for me but the bigger thing is that results need to change and change quickly.
“I’ll be proud to lead this team out and with a dressing room full of motivated players, and the tremendous backing from the fans, I’m confident we can turn this situation around and get back to winning games.”
