    In a surprising move, Steven Naismith has been appointed as Heart of Midlothian’s technical director instead of manager due to his lack of a Uefa Pro Licence. This means that Frank McAvoy will serve as head coach for the team.

    The former Scotland forward had previously taken over as caretaker boss from April and oversaw seven games while Robbie Neilson left with the side fourth in the Premiership. During this period, they won two, lost two and drew three games under interim charge by Naismith. Despite failing to retake third place from Aberdeen, they finished above city rivals Hibernian and qualified for Europa Conference League.

    Gordon Forrest will be first-team coach alongside Steven Naismith and Frankie McAvoy who have signed contracts until summer 2025 with an option for another year added on top. Chief executive Andrew McKinlay said: “We are thrilled to confirm Steven, Frankie and Gordon as our coaching team. After going through several excellent applications we believe these three were the best candidates who shared our vision for leading us into next season.”

    “Steven is an outstanding young coach with a strong track record of improving players whilst also displaying a commitment to blooding young talent through the ranks.”
