Mark Ridgers

Hearts goalkeeper Mark Ridgers has been ruled out for at least three months with knee ligament damage.

Ridgers was stretchered off during Scotland Under-21s' defeat by Belgium on Tuesday after a collision with Thomas Meunier.

Ridgers, who began the season as second choice to Jamie MacDonald, will now be assessed by a specialist.

"We'll give him all the support we can to get him back fit," said Hearts boss John McGlynn.
