"What Craig Gordon did is not new to me. He is the best keeper in Scotland, maybe the best keeper in Europe. He is our wall," the Hearts boss said following the 1-0 win.

"I haven't seen a keeper so calm and so solid of his age before and he is an important part of our team.

"We're very happy with the win after a bad game against Sparta Prague. How we won is not important, it is the win that counts.

"It's a very important three points, but how we took the points is more important. It was done through character and fight and togetherness."
