Hearts goalkeeper Craig Gordon has signed a new deal at the club.

The veteran Scotland international has extended his stay at Tynecastle for another year until 2025.

The 41-year-old recently made a comeback from injury in the Scottish Cup win over Spartans last month.

He was out for a year after suffering a double leg break on Boxing Day 2022.

However he currently remains second-choice goalkeeper at the Edinburgh club with Zander Clark remaining Steven Naismith’s first choice.

The former Celtic and Sunderland keeper, who has 74 international caps, remains hopeful of earning a place in Steve Clarke’s Scotland squad for Euro 2024.

Hearts confirmed on Thursday that he had put pen to paper on a new deal.

Naismith said: “It’s great for everyone that Craig has extended his contract by another year.

“Firstly, and most importantly, he’s a fantastic goalkeeper. I see him in training every day and he continues to put in unbelievable performances. To see him come back into the team against Spartans was a special moment.

“Secondly, he’s a leader. He’s an influential figure in the dressing room, someone who has played at the top level both domestically and internationally. Younger players look up to him, so to know that he will be at the club for another 18-months to not only compete for the No.1 jersey but pass on his knowledge to others is a massive thing for this club.

“He’s the type of character this club needs in order to keep progressing because he knows exactly what it takes to be successful.”
