Off subject but see the young 17 year laddie from Dundee United joined villa the day for a fee reported to be around £2mil after only 17 appearances for them. Some but of business that
They have to sell at that kind of offer, he just isn’t worth that to Dundee United.

Lets be honest, who gives a fuck, injury prone diet becomes a full fat. Hun bastard.
Something to be said for the hibs approach never to leave us vulnerable to our players signing pre contracts with the blue or green Huns.

No way would we be going into the last 6 months of a current Scotland internationals contract, we’d sell before that point.

The problem with Hearts and Souttar is different from the norm.
For both parties the elephant in the room the issue was serious back to back injuries.
He is and will continue to be a gamble.
Hearts rightly chose to wait until he could prove he could make a sustained comeback without a 4th achilles tendon rupture occuring before making him a new contract offer. Such an injury would almost certainly have been the end of him as a professional footballer.
In essence, there was no loyalty from Hearts, they were looking after themselves and the players livelihood was what was really on the line. This is why Hearts fans are wrong to call him disloyal.

He has been back playing for 9 months now and has played very well for Hearts which culminated in him scoring for his country in a vital game.
Naturally Hearts wanted to sign him up but he has apparently signed a 4 year contract with Rangers that will take care of him and his family financially to the age of 29 so as long as he can avoid another achilles tendon injury before he goes there. He needs to wrap himself in cottonwool meantime so Hearts are screwed. He is no use to them this season and they will be lucky to get £200k from Rangers.

For Soutar to progress, he needed to move to England and play at a higher level.
I rate the guy, but he's not going to develop at all as a player at Ibrox playing in the SPFL.
Totally agree and why I want Porteous to head south when he leaves us
