Hibs fan Darren Thomson came out with a hilarious set of three words after not being able to speak for three months following a stroke.
According to the Daily Record, the 22-year-old had lost all feeling in his body and could not move at all for three months, before a sudden recovery as he joined in a conversation with nurses around him.
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.”
