McLaughlin: Hearts move shocked Hibs-supporting family

first_img“It’s probably bittersweet for a lot of them but from a personal point of view it’s great to be part of a big football club and I’m really looking forward to being a valuable part of this side of Edinburgh.”He added: “All the family are originally from Edinburgh so we know the city really well and, of course, would visit whenever we could. “But this is a first taste of living in the city which will be fantastic. The wife and family are looking forward to it.“It helps draw players to the club, living in a city like this, and we are really looking forward to settling in and really enjoying our year here.” New Hearts goalkeeper Jon McLaughlin says his move has caused a minor family dispute as the majority of his relations support city rivals Hibs. The former Burton Albion stopper returned to the city of his birth when he penned a one-year deal with the Tynecastle outfit last month. While delighted on a personal level at the prospect of plying his trade in Edinburgh, signing for Hearts has generated mixed emotions in a family that has long followed the Leith club. McLaughin said: “It is true, the majority are from that side of town so it caused a few arguments when the news came out but I’m sure they are still happy for me to be earning my crust up here.last_img
