‘Hearts are s***e’: Hibs fan who had stroke uses first words in three months to abuse rival team

A Hibernian fan who was left unable to talk after suffering a stroke shocked nurses by using his first words in three months to brand his team’s bitter rivals, Hearts, “s***e”.

Darren Thomson was left with brain damage after a blood clot the size of a 10p coin caused a bleed on his brain.

Despite an operation to drain the excess fluid from his brain, the stroke left the 22-year-old wheelchair-bound and unable to speak.

However, while recovering at Borders General Hospital, Mr Thomson heard nurses talking about how they supported Hearts, fierce rivals of his beloved Hibs.

He then surprised hospital staff by uttering his first words in more than three months in response: “Hearts are s***e”.

Five months after he regained the ability to talk, Mr Thomson’s speech is still improving and he hopes to be able to walk in time to be best man at his father’s wedding later this year.

“But when I had a Hearts doctor looking after me, someone had said ‘what’s Hearts?’ and I just said ‘Hearts are s**te’.

“It just came to me, I was so happy that I spoke out, everyone laughed. “It felt so good to just hear my own voice again.”
