There might be some arguments for Dick Campbell, or maybe Stewart Petrie, but I'm sticking to John Robertson for my pick. It feels strange to be writing this after they've only picked up … Continue reading John Robertson’s Young Guns
It has been almost seven months since Hearts last played their fateful match against St Mirren, before the SPFL decided to demote the club following the COVID 19 crisis.
