Overhearing them talking about Hibs’ rivals Hearts, he popped up with: “Hearts are shite”, much to their surprise.

He told the Daily Record:”It was so scary not being able to speak. It’s so hard to put into words what it’s like not being able to speak.

“I was so confused, I didn’t even know what was happening or anything. But when I had a Hearts doctor looking after me, someone had said ‘what’s Hearts’ and I just said ‘Hearts are s**t’.

“It just came to me, I was so happy that I spoke out, everyone laughed. It felt so good to just hear my own voice again.”
