Wilson was sent off after the final whistle for using offensive language to the opposition and he has been given a one-match suspension.

Jamie Walker had put Hearts in front before McHattie was adjudged to have fouled Calvin Zola in the box and was shown a straight red card by the referee.

Niall McGinn levelled but Jordan McGhee's late winner sparked a touchline confrontation that saw Hearts assistant Billy Brown and Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes sent to the stands.

After the game Locke said: "You think you are a bit harshly done by and then you score a winning goal. Anybody that doesn't show a bit of passion, questions would be asked.

"I didn't think Billy did a lot wrong. His momentum took him into their technical area. I didn't think he could move that quickly.

"It's something out of nothing. We will go and have a beer with Derek now and it will be forgotten. The game was action-packed and I think we should be talking about how good a game it was with two teams who were desperate to get three points."

t's a bloody good goal, though. Sh!t, the kid's gonna be the worlds best before we know it, isn't he? He's got the touch of genius in him. Like Neymar, but with muscles and stuff. He's doing a Ronaldo as we watch. He's bulked up to be able to ride the tackles, but he's improved technically as well. His touch is sublime. Bugger.
