Craig Levein has prioritised signing a new striker before Hearts’ Scottish Cup tie against Hibs on Sunday. Talks continue regarding the Scotland internationalist Steven Naismith, however the move for Dutchman Leon de Kogel has stalled. De Kogel failed to agree terms with the Tynecastle club after visiting Edinburgh last week. The deal is not totally dead at the moment but Hearts are looking at other options as they race against time to strengthen their attack for the Edinburgh derby.
A loan move in January does not interest Hearts goalkeeper Jack Hamilton. He intends to go nowhere, although he isn’t exactly happy about being second choice this season. His firm plan is to fight back into manager Craig Levein’s plans rather than develop an exit strategy. Hamilton was demoted as No.1 keeper when Jon McLaughlin arrived at Tynecastle in August.
Hearts return from Spain’s Costa Blanca tomorrow eager to switch focus from winter training camp to Scottish Cup tie. The feeling within Craig Levein’s squad is that Hibs’ unbeaten run in Edinburgh derbies has gone on long enough. Striker Cole Stockton expects a physical encounter and acknowledges Hearts must stand up to their neighbours. However, it matters not how they win Sunday’s fourth round encounter at Tynecastle Park.
Just landed in Edinburgh to snow 🙈⛄. Some pics of Valencia. Nice city, great old town, cracking beach & harbour, stunning architecture, friendly people. Recommend it for a city break. 👍 https://t.co/wcsG8snkkK
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
