Hearts Kingston to shut up and put up

Laryea Kingston will take full advantage of his last chance at Hearts, claiming new boss Jim Jefferies had already become like a father to him. Jefferies has told Kingston he is on his final warning at Tynecastle after his commitment to the cause was repeatedly called into question under former boss Csaba Laszlo.

The 29 year old is determined to repay Jefferies' faith in him, telling Hearts.TV: "It has been a long time since I last played and I was happy to see myself back at Tynecastle. It was great to be back.

"No-one is perfect and everyone has problems in their career but I just want to get back playing.

"I am so, so happy about the new manager. He is like a father to me now. The first time I met him, I was so happy with the way he spoke to me.

"He is an experienced manager and, the way he spoke, I knew he has something to give this club.

"Everybody is happy in training and the morale in the dressing room has changed. It is a very good thing he is here.

"It is important that I don't let him down as he has supported me so well. I know I have to work hard in training and in games.

"It is not about me talking, I have to stay quiet and deliver on the pitch, give 100%."
