Lawrence Shankland was targeted with a lighter, AirPod and bottle opener as he waited to take his penalty for Hearts against Hibs.

The Tynecastle striker had a number of missiles thrown in his direction from the visiting support during the Edinburgh derby.

And photographs from the match have uncovered a lighter, bottle opener and AirPod were amongst the items launched in Shankland's direction. Cups were also hurled into the penalty area.

The Scotland international dispatched his penalty in front of the away support at Tynecastle despite the items being thrown from the stands.

The Hearts captain then took a jokingly bite from a pie thrown onto the pitch as he celebrated his 26th goal of the season.

Hearts boss Steven Naismith branded those responsible for throwing the items towards Shankland as "idiots" as he warned the small minority could "spoil the party for everybody".

He said: "But all the stuff getting launched on, it’s just not acceptable.

"If that then gets looked at, what’s going to happen is they are just going to reduce the amount of  fans that can go into that stand and that’s going to impact what I think is a good atmosphere, a good derby which has a fierce rivalry. 

"It’s just idiots that are going to spoil the party for everybody."

Discussing Shankland's composure to finish from the spot after the missiles, Naismith added: "Before we go onto that part - the calmness I spoke about, that’s exactly it.

"The way he acts for the penalty and his calmness to find the net, these are the defining moments in these games."

Hibs boss Nick Montgomery commented: “I don’t condone it, Steven doesn’t condone it. 

“Neither do the clubs. Unfortunately, there were a few things.

“Emi Marcondes had it in the first half as well when we had serious pressure on them. But I don’t want to talk about it tonight.”
