Hearts just can’t seem to catch a break right now, as Conor Washington becomes the next Jambo to suffer a long-term injury.

The club have confirmed that the Northern Irishman will miss three months of action. He picked up a hamstring tear during the match against Motherwell, scans have shown.

Some Hearts fans have reacted to the Washington announcement.

Should the Hearts medical staff be questioned following another injury

Joel Pereira, Michael Smith, John Souttar, Aidy White, Ben Garrucio, Peter Haring, Jamie Walker, Callumn Morrison Craig Wighton, Steven Naismith and now Washington have all been injured this season.

At least eight of them are starters when fit. Craig Levein really hasn’t been helped by injuries this term.

At what point do the medical staff at Tynecastle begin to be questioned? This isn’t just one freak injury, it’s another in a long list of muscle injuries.

Things like Walker’s leg fracture are unfortunate, but the likes of Pereira, Smith and Naismith are all struggling with muscular injuries. Some fans are questioning whether they are being pushed too hard in training.

Washington’s absence is big. With Naismith out injured, he was the only striker who looked capable of contributing double figure this season. Now he could be sidelined until 2020 potentially.

It’s another blow for Hearts as things go from bad to worse.
