Former striker Edgaras Jankauskas has returned to Hearts as assistant manager, reports The Scotsman.

The Lithuanian, who won two European trophies under Jose Mourinho at Porto, spent last season in the same role at Lokomotiv Moscow.

In a statement on the club’s official website, boss John McGlynn said: “I’d like to welcome Edgaras to the club and extend him the warmest of wishes.

“Obviously I’ve worked with him in the past and I know what a talented individual he was on the field. I’m certain that, having spent a year coaching in Russia, he will prove to be just as exceptional off the field too and he’ll slot in perfectly to the coaching set up here.

“This is a new start at Hearts and I’m confident we have the right people to take this club forward.”
