Steven Naismith begins running with Hearts after injury
Hearts forward Steven Naismith began running at Riccarton today as he stepped up his recovery from knee surgery.
The 32-year-old damaged knee cartilage in October's Betfred Cup semi-final against Celtic but is now back jogging after missing more than a month of action.
He is expected to return to the Hearts first team in mid-to-late December, with the Edinburgh club having failed to score a goal since he was sidelined.
Naismith, on a season-long loan at Hearts from Norwich City, was the Ladbrokes Premiership's top goalscorer when injury struck. He has 13 goals in 20 games for Hearts and Scotland this season.
