The Tynecastle duo were on their way back from training with the national team yesterday when an OAP crashed her Nissan Micra into the back of their car.

Pictures on fans’ forum Jambos Kickback show the Hearts stars in their training kits being treated by an SFA medic alongside three elderly people.

It is understood that no-one was hurt in the minor collision. The elderly motorist was said to have been “shaken up” by the incident.
