The most important thing for Hearts though was we came through our Premiership meeting with Partick having secured a one-nil win on Saturday with Robbie Neilson admitting it had been ‘a tough one’ for us.

However, with what he told BBC Scotland, he was obviously happy with the win to end a ‘good week’ when we won for a third time.

‘It was a tough one for us. Partick are on a good run of form just now. We have had three clean sheets, nine points, so it’s been a good week.’

The first half goal from Arnaud Djoum, with as we know his first goal of the season (and indeed for the club), saw us to this one-nil win with him coming in for praise from Neilson for the impact he’s had since arriving in September, with us ‘getting lucky’ with him.

When he did he signed a short-term deal, which was extended to secure his services for longer.

‘We were lucky to get him. He was looking for a club in the summer and had a couple of trials at places that didn’t work out for him. He came to us just after the window shut, we brought him in and he’s done fantastically well. We renewed his contract as he was on a short-term one; he is just a good player.’

Regarding the plane that flew over, I’m still stunned by it myself (with the banner reading ‘No style, no bottle, Neilson out!’) he finished by saying he ‘didn’t see it.’

The Head Coach knows that’s ‘football’ though as having won the Championship by a country mile last season then being third in the Premiership might not be enough for some but if they want to ‘waste money’ on things like that as opposed from use it within the club so be it.

‘To be honest, I didn’t see it. That’s football, we are sitting third in the league and we are doing well but there is always somebody that’s not happy. If somebody wants to spend their money on that, I would rather they put their money into the Foundation of Hearts like everyone else, but if that’s how they want to do it then fair enough.’

Well said Robbie!
