Hearts have been hind-bound from registering players to liven up the squad.
Hearts manager John McGlynn can't wait to be able to sign new players. The embargo imposed on the club, by the SPL over late payment of wages, could end on 23 December just in time for the January transfer window. Lithuania striker Arturas Rimkevicius is said to be one new recruit in the pipeline. Scoring has been a problem for the financially struggling side but they managed to grab a brace against Aberdeen yesterday. McGlynn said: "The football club will still need to satisfy the SPL for that transfer embargo to be lifted. We might have to lose some players and it may be we have to bring in players at a lower wage to compensate for that. If he (Rimkevicius) was going to be part of our plans, if he was training with us, he would get his fitness up and be ready to go if everything was to work out. There's a wee bit of work to get done first of all with the transfer embargo." Ryan Stevenson opened the scoring from the penalty spot, before his replacement Callum Paterson scored the second for a welcome win after a three-game winless run. McGlynn went on: "I thought we merited a good 2-0 victory, a good response to last week's derby defeat. We defended all the set-pieces very, very well, stayed solid. Barring the Celtic game when we lost four goals, our defensive record's fairly good and barring a wee bit of bad luck for us last week we would've had another clean-sheet."
