Michael Smith is hellbent on driving Hearts in between the Old Firm this season after bypassing a contract clause to sign a new deal until 2023 at Tynecastle.

The Northern Ireland international has followed Craig Gordon, Craig Halkett and Stephen Kinglsey in pledging his future to the Jambos - and insists second place is not beyond Robbie Neilson ’s men.

Smith is one of the longest serving stars in Gorgie having made 158 appearances since signing in 2017 and has seen the ups and downs having been relegated in the covid-curtailed season two years ago.

But he’s been a key man in Hearts’ Premiership resurgence which sees them sit clear in third spot and nine points off Celtic in second ahead of the top flight restart.
