Soccer AM slot spells feast of fun for young Hearts stars

HEARTS teenagers Gary Glen and Matej Rapnik have engaged in a skills face-off to be broadcast on Sky Sports' hugely popular Soccer AM show tomorrow morning.

The programme's "Skill Skool" visited Riccarton this week to pit the promising youngsters against one another, the outcome of which is sure to intrigue supporters.

The talent showcase is played over three rounds with Rocket, the "Skill Skool" presenter, describing one of the player's skills as being amongst of the best he's seen. To see whether Glen or Rapnik secured the bragging rights, tune in at approximately 11.30am tomorrow morning.

Darren Murray, Hearts Under-19 coach, said: "It was good fun. It really let the boys showcase their skills but there was also a bit of showboating that will make the fans laugh if it makes the cut."

Glen scored on his first start for Hearts' senior side against St Mirren last month and followed up with his second in as many games against Inverness last weekend.

Rapnik, a central defender, is a highly rated Slovenian Under-17 internationalist and a mainstay of Hearts' Under-19 side.
