Injured Hearts goalkeeper Mark Ridgers has revealed he doesn’t know what the future will hold for him as he battles back from a knee injury.

Both Ridgers and the Jambos’ first-choice stopper Jamie MacDonald are out of contract at the end of the season and with Hearts currently in the grip of administration, the 23-year-old, who tore the meniscus in his right knee last month, is in the dark about life beyond the end of this season.

“It’s been very frustrating because up until I got injured it was probably the best I’ve felt in my career,” said Ridgers.

“Jamie’s contract is up as well as mine so the club might have a decision to make because I can’t see them keeping us both.

“From a personal point of view, I need to look after myself. I’ve been at Hearts a long time and would have liked to have played more games.

“It’s up to me to keep impressing them. If not, then it’ll be about looking for a new team.”
