GOALKEEPER Neil Alexander has signed for Scottish outfit Hearts following his release from Crystal Palace. The 36-year-old spent just one season at Selhurst Park as back-up to Julian Speroni and played a number of reserve matches. After leaving the Eagles, Alexander has returned home to Scotland and his new contract as a player-coach will begin next Tuesday. Alexander told the Hearts official website website: "As a boyhood fan, I am delighted to get the chance to join a club I have supported for many years. "With the coaching side of it as well, this is a fantastic opportunity for me. "I'll be signing on July 1. I'm excited at the challenge ahead, am raring to go and delighted to be back in Scotland. "At 36, I need to start looking to the future and want to get involved in coaching. "The club has given me a great chance to get a foot on the ladder and it's an opportunity I just couldn't turn down. "We have a young squad and if I can help bring on these kids, hopefully it will work well for us all."
