'Rubbish' new Hearts signing gets dragged off after 30 minutes

'Rubbish' new Hearts signing gets dragged off after 30 minutes

Hearts manager Craig Levein was in no mood to mince his words on Wednesday night when describing the performance of new signing David Vanecek.

Levein was upset with his side after they lost 2-1 to Dundee at Tynecastle, in a result which saw their opponents lift themselves off the bottom of the Scottish Premiership table and above St Mirren.

As for Hearts, their strong start has well and truly faded, with the team now finding themselves sat 6th in the table and nine points off the pace of league leaders Celtic.

The club recently signed Czech forward Vanecek from FK Teplice, with Wednesday night’s match marking just his second appearance for his new side. It's fair to say it's been a tough introduction to life in Scotland for the 27-year-old, who has taken off by Levein after just 30 minutes last night, with his manager describing his performance as ‘rubbish’.

After a strong start, Hearts have now dropped to sixth in the Scottish Premiership

Levein was highly critical of him, saying: "I thought he was rubbish. He wasn't playing well, wasn't holding the ball up and then got himself booked.

"I thought the last thing we needed was for David to get involved in another challenge and get himself sent off. He'll need to do a hell of a lot of work to get himself to the fitness levels he needs.

"Okay, this has been two games in quick succession after five weeks without a game, but he still needs to be better."

Hearts fans will certainly be hoping this isn’t a sign of things to come from their new player who looked a long way off the pace.

A frustrated Levein added: "I might be a little bit annoyed that he didn't turn up in better shape.

"I felt he just looked as if he wasn't at the races. He wasn't playing well. He'll need to do a hell of a lot of work to get himself to the fitness levels he needs."
