Hearts to train at Murrayfield ahead of Aberdeen clash


Hearts will train at Murrayfield this week in preparation for the visit of Premiership leaders Aberdeen.

Newly appointed manager Craig Levein will put the players through their paces in a session at the home of Scottish rugby on Friday in a bid to familiarise the squad with their temporary home.

The Tynecastle outfit will play games against the Dons, St Johnstone and Rangers at the 67,000 capacity stadium as work continues on their new £14 million main stand.

Playing at Murrayfield is nothing new for Hearts as a club, with the Gorgie outfit having played a total of eight games – mostly European encounters – at the neighbouring venue.

The last game they played at the ground was in July 2007 when Barcelona won a pre-season friendly 3-1 in front of 57,857 supporters.

Aberdeen, who have won their first four league matches, have already sold around 6,000 tickets for the clash, with a crowd in excess of 20,000 expected on Saturday.
