Hearts have signed goalkeeper Paul Gallacher as a player-coach.
The 36-year-old, who was out of contract after leaving Partick, joins on a two-year deal and will act as goalkeeping coach while providing playing cover.
Hearts head coach Robbie Neilson said: "I'm happy to get Paul signed up.
"He's a vastly experienced goalkeeper and is a good goalkeeper coach too, having spent time in that role at Partick Thistle.
"He'll primarily be a coach, but he'll be registered as a player too and I know he'll be ready if called upon.
"I'm sure Jack Hamilton and the other goalkeepers at the club will benefit greatly from Paul's knowledge."
