Daniel Stendel believes Hearts defender John Souttar’s season is over after the defender appeared to rupture his Achilles against Rangers.
The Scotland centre-back went down off the ball 14 minutes into his side’s 1-0 Scottish Cup quarter-final win over the Light Blues.
It would appear to be a repeat of an injury which he ruled him out for five months when he first suffered the problem back in January 2017.
Stendel, after seeing his side book a semi-final slot, said: “It’s not really good. At the moment, the first diagnosis is that he cannot play this season anymore. It’s bad.”
