Stevenson departure will break young Hearts, says defender

Brad McKay, the Hearts defender, remains hopeful that Ryan Stevenson will still be at the club next season despite the midfielder having been told he can leave.

The 29-year-old remains under contract at Tynecastle but will only be granted a place in the first team if he agrees to play for 25% of the wage he negotiated in 2012.

It is thought that Stevenson will exercise a release clause in his deal and move on this summer, although McKay does not want his team-mate to go.

"He is absolutely outstanding with the young boys at the club, which is what you need," he said. "He would be a really big miss if he does leave."
