Former Hearts captain Michael Stewart is to head a new sports group campaigning for independence.

The Scotland star, who also played for Hibs, said: “I firmly believe a Yes vote in September will lead to a huge upsurge in self-belief and confidence for our country – two crucial components in sport linked to performance and achieving your goals.

“My sport already competes as a nation and I was fortunate to pull on the dark blue strip to compete, but not everyone has had the chance. A Yes vote means more opportunity for people from all walks of life, but especially for sport.”
