Celtic Invincible Gary Mackay-Steven has returned to Scotland to play for Hearts, the Edinburgh club has confirmed.

The winger has signed a two-and-a-half year deal after leaving Major League Soccer side New York City at the end of his contract.

Mackay-Steven played 62 times for Celtic and made ten of those appearances during the club’s incredible 2016/17 season.

He would later join Aberdeen before heading stateside where he made 39 appearances for the New York club.

Hearts will now be hoping he can help them return to the top-flight after their relegation last term.

Now 30, the attacker is known for his quick feet and silky skills.

He made the move to Celtic with pal Stuart Armstrong during the 2015 January transfer window after excelling at Dundee United under Jackie McNamara.

Armstrong would go on to have the more illustrious career but ‘GMS’ always appeared to enjoy his time at Celtic and provided the odd moment of magic.

It’ll be interesting to see how he gets on at Tynecastle. Though I doubt many Celtic fans will be cheering on Hearts!

All the best anyway, Gary.

In other news, Celtic have been given the green light to make a move for Joel Randall.
