Naismith renamed Hearts head coach with McAvoy assistant

Steven Naismith has returned to his role as Hearts head coach, following the club's exit from European competition.

The former Scotland international had been appointed technical director in the summer, with Frankie McAvoy in charge, as the club embarked on Europa Conference League qualifiers.

However, after the defeat to PAOK, Naismith will take over first-team duties at Tynecastle Park with McAvoy his number two.

Hearts have won just one league match this season and are on four points after four games, but CEO Andrew McKinlay is still targetting European qualification for a third consecutive year.

"Firstly, I'd like to place on record my thanks to Frankie for all of his hard work over the past few months," McKinlay told Hearts' official website.
