Hearts winger Jake Mulraney believes Hearts’ aim, with the ‘quality’ they have, should be Europa League football.

Despite a pretty disappointing start to the season, the Jambos are just three points off the top six having played one game less than sixth place Ross County.

They’ve been down near the basement for the most part though, something which resulted in the sacking of Craig Levein.

Despite this, Mulraney reckons the Europa League should be the club’s aim. He told the Herald (sport, page 6, 11/11/19): “We should be aiming for the Europa League.

“You could see on Saturday that we have got the quality to do it – we just have to do it over and over again.”

Mulraney helped Hearts take a big step at the weekend

Having not won at home since March heading into their clash with St Mirren, the Jambos desperately needed three points to avoid the potential of slumping to the bottom.

Mulraney played his part, notching a goal from the bench on his return from injury as Hearts beat the Buddies 5-2. It leaves them eighth in the table.

They’ll need a few more of those results if Mulraney’s statement is to come to fruition.
