Hearts' on-loan winger Rudi Skacel is disappointed about missing out on the club's last two SPL games.

Skacel, who is only second behind John Hartson in the SPL scoring charts, has been omitted from Hearts' recent clashes against Celtic and Dunfermline.

Caretaker boss Valdas Ivanauskas has played down reports of a bust-up between the pair, saying the attacker needs a rest, but Skacel is unhappy at missing out.

"Nobody has explained anything to me, I feel strange about this," Skacel told Czech newspaper Daily Sport.

"I did not play last Wednesday, they said that I was tired and needed a rest before the important matches.

"I am disappointed because I am perfectly fit and ready to play immediately."

Skacel has been linked with a return to parent club Marseille in the summer, but he does not believe he will be back with the Ligue 1 outfit next term.

"I will probably not return to Marseille, I am not even in contact with the club. I think that none of them can count on my return," he concluded.
