Former Rangers winger Barrie McKay insists his return to Scottish football with Hearts is a ‘whole new start’ and does not focus on righting the wrongs caused by his time at Ibrox.
McKay was frozen with the Rangers under Pedro Caixinha before moving to England, but struggled to really make his mark south of the border.
After joining the Jambos as a free agent earlier this week, McKay is looking to get his hands on the silverware at Tynecastle rather than think about “what happened in the past.”
“It’s a whole new start for me and it’s important that I go out there and do my best. I don’t think about what’s happened in the past, ”McKay said.
“I will do my best and not think about the past.
“I’m going to focus on what I’m doing now rather than what I did years and years ago.
“Everywhere you go you want to win matches and trophies. It is no different here.
This is what we want to do, this is what every player wants to do, and I hope we can do it this season.
The ex-Rangers star could make his Hearts debut this weekend in the Edinburgh derby as the capital’s sides face off in a top clash.
Although it is still early in the season, Hearts and Hibs have been in great shape; Hearts boss Robbie Neilson takes home the Premiership Manager of the Month award.
McKay’s Rangers exit is now a thing of the past and it will be interesting to see how he fares in the top flight at Tynecastle after largely disappearing from the radar during his stint in English football.
