Zaliukas backs Lithuanians to bring Hearts success

Hearts defender Marius Zaliukas insists the club's Lithuanian contingent can help them qualify for the Champions League this season.

He said: "The owner of the club is Lithuanian and there are a lot of Lithuanian players here. Maybe a lot of people don't like that because Hearts is a Scottish club and they want some more Scottish players.

"But I think there are good players here, a lot of international players and a lot of different nationalities and everyone can play well.

"We just have to prove that and that there is a good team spirit at the club.

"We have had better results in the last couple of games and I think that if we can keep that going then we can be in first or second place in the league this season."
