Hearts midfielder Laryea Kingston was back training at Tynecastle this morning after returning earlier than expected from international duty.
The Ghanaian star had flown out to Accra ahead of his country's midweek friendly with Tunisia to prove to the Black Cats' management team - and supporters - that he was injured. (aye right)
The Tynecastle star has been sidelined for weeks with a thigh problem (heard it) and wanted to assure his national boss Milovan Rajevac that the injury was genuine. (hmmmm)
At yesterday's pre-match Press conference at Riccarton, Gorgie chief Csaba Laszlo said he didn't expect the playmaker back until Monday. (didn't expect the playmaker back, more like!!)
However, the Ghana ace jetted back into the Capital late yesterday and reported for training at the stadium this morning.
He went through a jogging session around the track with team-mate Deividas Cesnauskis, with the pair set to continue their rehabilitation over the coming days. (we'll see............)
