Summer claim made over Shankland’s Hearts future as former Rangers boss delivers message to Hibs new boy



The future of Hearts star Lawrence Shankland appears to be uncertain as he continues to attract interest from Rangers and clubs in England. Since joining Tynecastle from Belgian club Beerschot in the summer of 2022, Shankland has been in remarkable form, scoring 50 goals in 79 games in all competitions.

Despite remaining at Hearts after the January transfer window, there are claims that Shankland’s long-term future may lie away from Tynecastle. Journalist Dean Jones suggested that Shankland is likely to make a transfer at some point, with interest from clubs outside of Scotland growing. It is speculated that a decision on his future will be made at the end of the season when he enters the final 12 months of his current deal.

Jones emphasized that Shankland will continue to give his all for Hearts, regardless of his contract situation, and will aim to maintain his goal-scoring form for the remainder of the season. Ultimately, his performance could benefit Hearts, as it may increase his value in the transfer market during the summer window.

Sunderland boss delivers message to Hibs loan star

Hibs loan signing Nectarios Triantis has been told he will get a chance to impress at parent club Sunderland once his temporary spell at Easter Road is complete.

Nectar Triantis, the Australia U23s defender, reunited with his former Central Coast Mariners manager, Nick Montgomery, when he joined Hibs on loan on the final day of the January transfer window. However, his start at the club was challenging, with defeats against St. Mirren and Celtic in his first two starts.

Fortunately, Triantis experienced his first win with Hibs in a 3-1 victory against Championship strugglers Inverness Caledonian Thistle in a Scottish Cup fifth round tie. Myziane Maolida, Martin Boyle, and Elie Youan were the scorers in that match.

Speaking ahead of the tie, former Rangers manager Michael Beale discussed Triantis’ move to Easter Road and emphasized that they would monitor his development before his return to Sunderland in the summer.

Beale highlighted Triantis’ recent playing time, stating that two 90-minute games in a short span had provided him with valuable experience. The plan is for Triantis to return to Sunderland in the summer and have the opportunity to compete for a place in the team. Beale acknowledged the importance of balancing Triantis’ development with the needs of both clubs, emphasizing the need for a strategic approach to player management.
