Neilson back at Hearts
Hearts have reappointed Robbie Neilson as manager after agreeing a compensation deal with Dundee United.
The 40-year-old, who was previously in charge at Tynecastle between 2014 and 2016, rejoins the Jambos on a three-year contract.
“You don’t turn down the chance to come to a club like Hearts and I’m absolutely delighted to be coming back,” said Neilson.
Neilson guided Dundee United to the Championship title last season in a campaign curtailed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
He will return to the Scottish tier with Hearts after they finished bottom of the Premiership and were relegated.
The former defender, who spent nine years as a Hearts player, added: “I had some great experiences here and I’m keen to pick up where I left off.”
