Frank Nuttall hails 'most passionate' Hearts fans

Hearts coach Frank Nuttall has praised the club's supporters, calling them the most passionate fans he's experienced in his career.

The Scottish has had stints with Gor Mahia and Zamalek but says it's Hearts that he's seen most passion.

“That is football, that is to be expected from football fans," he said

“You know football can be a hero one moment and an enemy in another, it comes with the territory and the job and, of course, the fans want us to win and are very passionate and I dont expect anything different.

"And I have to say I am very pleased for the fans, players and the staff."

Defender Vincent Atinga converted an 84th minute penalty as the Phobians broke an eight-year duck against their rivals.
