Hearts have bolstered both the goalkeeping and coaching ranks with the addition of Paul Gallacher.
The experienced former Partick Thistle man signs after his contract at Firhill expired, signing a two-year deal at Tynecastle.
36-year-old Paul will take up the role of the club’s goalkeeping coach, in addition to being registered as a player for the upcoming 2016/17 campaign.
Speaking to heartsfc.co.uk about the deal, head coach Robbie Neilson said: “I'm happy to get Paul signed up.
"He's a vastly experienced goalkeeper and is a good goalkeeper coach too, having spent time in that role at Partick Thistle.
"He'll primarily be a coach, but he'll be registered as a player too and I know he'll be ready if called upon.
"I'm sure Jack Hamilton and the other goalkeepers at the club will benefit greatly from Paul's knowledge."
