Alim Ozturk has echoed Robbie Neilson’s recent comments by thanking the fans for continuing to help make the club even stronger.
The Hearts head coach recently stated that the continued backing by the fans, through ticket sales and Foundation of Hearts pledges, had helped him to add to his squad.
With the transfer deadline day captures of Don Cowie, Abiola Dauda and John Souttar, captain Alim is in total agreement with his gaffer.
"The backing from the fans is unbelievable. It's been like that since I came to Hearts when they helped the club stay alive, and it's amazing.
"When I arrived, it was explained to me that every single month the fans put their money into the club.
"I hope the fans keep giving us that backing and support us because that's so important.
"If you want to push the other teams as well, you have to continue to get stronger and they can help us.
"Their support has laid the foundations for what we've done so far but we don't want to stand still.
"Good players make other players better as well and it's good for the team to bring in new players, and I hope the new signings do well."
