Hearts: Will see Edgaras Jankauskas leav

Hearts assistant manager Edgaras Jankauskas is to leave Tynecastle just a year after returning to Edinburgh, the club have confirmed.

The Lithuanian, who won the Scottish Cup in 2006 during his spell with the club as a player, rejoined the Gorgie outfit last year and worked underneath managers Paulo Sergio, John McGlynn and current boss Gary Locke.

The 38-year-old former Porto striker stressed that the Jambos will always have a special place in his heart and praised for the club's supporters.

He told the club's official website: "It has been a great experience, an honour and privilege to have been here as assistant manager for the past year.

"Tynecastle is a special place and I will always retain fond memories of the stadium and particularly the supporters. They have been phenomenal this season and I'm only disappointed that we didn't have a better campaign for them.

"I have enjoyed my time here and I'm sure it will prove of great benefit as I look to continue my career off the park."

Hearts announced yesterday that the clear-out of their first-team squad had continued with the release of midfielder Mehdi Taouil.

The Moroccan follows Danny Grainger, Darren Barr, Gordon Smith, Denis Prychynenko and George Scott out the Tynecastle exit.
