The French-Serbian attacker was in from the start for Craig Levein’s men as they welcomed an in-form Hibees team to Gorgie.
Neil Lennon’s side had their sights set on second place going into the game, knowing a win would put them in the ideal place ahead of a potential second place decider against Rangers at Easter Road on Sunday.
Unfortunately for Hibs though, they couldn’t do the business against a strong Hearts side, with goals from Kyle Lafferty and Steven Naismith bettering Florian Kamberi’s penalty for the visitors.
Milinkovic impressed before being substituted a minute before full-time – and he sounded delighted after the game as he posted to Instagram Live:

Milinkovic is already a favourite among the Hearts fans – and that will only add to their love for him.
He’s on a loan from Genoa until the end of the season and it remains to be seen whether or not he could rejoin the club in the summer.
