Hearts came agonisingly close to winning the Scottish Cup last season, losing 2-1 to Celtic in the final after taking the lead.

However, summer signing Craig Halkett believes that the Tynecastle club can once more challenge for honours this season.

“We could have a great season but I don’t think we should set any limits” he said, as reported by the Evening News.

“I don’t think there are any limits. I don’t think there is anything that can stop us this season.”

It is good to hear a player so confident in the ability of his team-mates. Hearts do have a chance of winning some silverware this season.

However, they could need a bit of luck along the way. They were fortunate in the Scottish Cup draw last season, but ironically that deserted them in the Scottish Cup Final.

The chances of Hearts winning the league are quite remote. However, cup success could be on the horizon. As well as reaching the Scottish Cup Final, Hearts reached the Betfred Cup semi-final.

They were unfortunate to meet Celtic on both occasions. However, you have to think that Celtic’s run of cup success will end sooner rather than later.

When it does happen, Hearts may well be the team to take advantage. Craig Halkett certainly seems to believe that it is possible.
