Kevin McHattie: Misses trip to the Highlands

Left-back McHattie was sent off for a professional foul on Calvin Zola in the incident which led to Aberdeen's penalty and equaliser in their eventual 2-1 defeat.

An appeal was lodged with the Scottish Football Association, but a disciplinary tribunal upheld the original decision and McHattie will now serve a one-match suspension.

That rules him out of Saturday's trip to Inverness along with captain Danny Wilson, who was sent off after the final whistle against Aberdeen for using offensive language.

Hearts boss Gary Locke told the club website: "I'm very disappointed at the outcome. We have to take it on the chin and move on.

"At least I know who is out for the weekend - Kevin and Danny Wilson are now suspended. I'll have to look at things in terms of shaping a team."

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.

amous. If that can be achieved whilst sitting in your pants and without any degree of hard work, all the better. I have no desire to be famous, but the rest of that line suits me just fine. Great article by the way, well worth the wait.

here seems to be little focus on the performance of Besiktas. They played very well and stopped Arsenal from playing. Credit has to go to their manager. As much as Arsenal didn't play too well, we kept a clean sheet, but the home side made it very difficult.
