Heart of Midlothian have confirmed the appointment of John McGlynn as the clubs new manager.

The 50-year old has taken the reins of the Edinburgh club after Paulo Sergio quit recently, joining from First Division club Raith Rovers.

McGlynn returns to Tynecastle after serving as a coach for 10 years under various managers and is seen as a man who is adept at nurturing talented young players.

"We are delighted to announce the arrival of John McGlynn as manager of Heart of Midlothian FC,” a Hearts spokesperson said.

"Understandably the post attracted interest from around the globe and the quality of the applications made it a difficult decision.

"John's track record, though, in developing young players is outstanding and one of the key criteria for the appointment was an ability to successfully integrate youngsters into a senior squad which can compete competitively at the top end of the table.

"He also knows the club intimately having previously spent 10 years as a coach here and we are confident he can take the club forward and build on the success of last season's William Hill Scottish Cup triumph.

"We would also like to put on record our appreciation of Raith Rovers' co-operation in this matter and wish them all the best for the forthcoming season."
