HEARTS keeper Zdenek Zlamal has said he feels “sorry” for the Hibs fan who assaulted him during last night’s heated goalless derby at Tynecastle.
The Czech No.1 was the victim of a punch thrown by a lout behind his goal as he went to retrieve the ball while footage emerged of a set of keys – apparently thrown at the shotstopper – lodged in his net.
Zlamal, writing on social media, has hit back at the attacker and insisted: “I feel sorry for your personal tragedies that force you to behave like this.
“Yesterday’s result was 0-0, but everybody knows who the losers are.
“You punched me in the face, I was ok, no big deal, but feel sorry for your personal tragedies that force you to behave like this.
“Our kids are watching the games and I’m sure they can recognise their real heroes.”
Zlamal – nicknamed Bobby – joined the Edinburgh outfit in the summer from Czech top-flight side Fastav Zlin.
