Barrie McKay played for more than an hour as Heart of Midlothian lost to Dundee in a bounce game as he works his way back from injury.

The playmaker provided the assist for Adam Forrester to score in what was a 5-1 defeat at Tynecastle Park.

McKay's season has been ravaged by injury, limiting him to just seven appearances this campaign. The 29-year-old came into the campaign recovering from an ankle issue but would later sustain two knee injuries, the latest coming at the end of the 1-0 win over Hibs at Easter Road at the end of December.

He was one of a handful of first-team players who got game time in the bounce match with Yutaro Oda playing around 50 minutes following his comeback while Kyosuke Tagawa also featured as well as the likes of Alex Cochrane, Cammy Devlin and Alan Forrest.

A raft of changes were made during the match which allowed a host of the club's youngsters to get minutes. B team goalkeeper Liam McFarlane started as did Luke Rathie and Forrester. Callum Sandilands, James Wilson and Gus Stevenson were some of those who appeared off the bench.
