Departing skipper Danny Wilson has said he leaves Hearts with his head held high having played his part in returning the club to the Premiership.

Having already announced his intention to leave the club this summer for pastures new, he spoke to the Official Site following the two all draw with Rangers at the weekend and explained that leading the team onto the pitch for the final time – there was no better feeling that knowing we were going up.

Talking about the game itself, he admits it was a mixed final day to the campaign having been two goals behind before getting the late double equaliser through Genero Zeefuik, but given our performances on the day he echoed the thoughts of Robbie Neilson in saying the least we deserved was a draw ahead of our trophy celebrations.

‘There were good things and some not so good things in the performance, but we got a point in the end so we`re pleased with that. It would have been disappointing to celebrate the title on the back of a defeat, so I think a draw was pretty fair.’

As for the season itself having secured promotion with seven games remaining in the campaign, he was obviously delighted.

‘This season`s been great from start to finish and to win the league as early as we did was a great feeling. We struggled to keep the momentum going once the title was secured and we probably dropped off a bit, albeit not intentionally. These things can happen. It was great to finally lift the trophy, although at the time my focus was on getting my thumbs in the right place as I`d been warned the lid would fly off it if I lifted it too quickly!’

With his departure from the club now arranged, he admitted that he would always look back at his time at Tynecastle with fond memories and a smile and he again said it was a massive decision to take when he decided to leave but after some struggles he feels he now leaves with his head held high knowing he achieved something with us.

He also said he was confident that under Neilson and the group we have, we would have a successful 2015-16 and future.

‘This team will be fine, I`m sure of that. They`ve got a good manager and good players and will no doubt strengthen in the summer. I hope they can go on and fulfill their potential.’
