Hearts are looking through CCTV footage after a bottle appeared to be thrown from the away end during the Boxing Day Edinburgh derby.

If confirmed, it'll be the second such incident involving Hibs fans in the space of a week after a vodka bottle was thrown in the direction of Rangers defender Borna Barisic during last Friday's 3-0 defeat at Easter Road.

This latest occurrence happened during the 2-0 victory over rivals Hearts and saw a Budweiser bottle smash off the back of the LED advertising boards behind the goals at the Roseburn Stand.
