Hearts have today confirmed the appointment of former Hibs striker Stevie Crawford as assistant to new head coach Robbie Neilson.

Crawford had previously worked beside Neilson at Falkirk prior to him leaving his post to take up a coaching role at Tynecastle.

The 40 year old returns to the capital having played for Hibs for three seasons although he was part of the last Easter Road side to be relegated from the top division.

He arrived in Leith having completed a £360,000 transfer from Millwall and went on to make 82 appearances, scoring 24 goals.

The player left Hibs permanently in the summer of 2000 having spent much of the 1999/00 season on loan at Dunfermline and he signed permanently for The Pars that summer.

After 4 years in Fife Crawford played for numerous clubs including Plymouth, Dundee United and Aberdeen before returning for a second spell at Dunfermline.

Rather astonishingly, he also collected 25 international caps for Scotland which sadly reflects the confetti like way they were handed out in the Berti Vogts era.
