Hearts goalkeeper Tetteh Luggard insists he isn’t looking over his shoulder following the return of Philemon McCarthy.
McCarthy was Hearts’ number one shot-stopper until he was knocked down by a finger injury which ruled him out of action for six months.
The 28-year-old has recovered fully and has been training with the side since the start of this month.
Competition for starting role will intensify for Luggard with McCarthy’s arrival but the youngster insists he is not bothered.
‘For me I’m a professional and so I’m not worried over who will fight for the position with me,” Luggard said
“Doing well for the club is my ultimate goal. It’s not about me but it’s about the team winning.
“I don’t want to be drawn into any debate. I’m just focused on doing well for this great club.
“We want to win the League title and that for me is where the focus should be.”
“The collective good of the team overrides an individual’s interest.”
Luggard was at his agile best during their 1-0 home defeat to arch-rivals Asante Kotoko in the Ghanaian super derby on Sunday.
