Kilmarnock skipper Craig Bryson has consigned Hearts' failure to buy him to history and is now concentrating on his Rugby Park future. The 23 year old spent the summer being linked with a move to join his former Killie boss Jim Jefferies at Tynecastle.
The Ayrshire club, believed to be looking for around £500,000 for the former Scotland Under-21 player, knocked back several bids from the Gorgie club including two on deadline day and thus the expected transfer failed to materialise.
"It's always nice when teams want you but now I can just concentrate on playing for Kilmarnock and that's what I want to do." he said.
"It was fine for me. Some people were asking me what was happening but I didn't know so that was it.
"But I would rather move it to one side for now and concentrate on playing for Killie.
"We play St Mirren on Saturday and hopefully we can get a positive result.
"I want to do as well as I can for Killie and help the team get some good results."
