Deividas Česnauskis (born 30 June 1981 in Kuršėnai, Lithuanian SSR, Soviet Union) is a Lithuanian footballer, who plays as a winger and is currently plays for Ergotelis. He most recently played for Scottish Premier League club Heart of Midlothian. Česnauskis is also a member of the Lithuanian national side.



Česnauskis started his career as a teenage prodigy with Ekranas Panevėžys and earned a move to the Russian Premier League before his nineteenth birthday, when he joined Dynamo Moscow in 2000. Having previously been a regular for the Lithuanian under-21 side, he made his debut for the full national side against Estonia aged only 20, in 2001.

After several years at Dynamo, Česnauskis joined city rivals Lokomotiv Moscow for the 2004 Russian season, before agreeing a transfer to Scotland with Hearts in 2005. The terms of this deal involved him signing for FBK Kaunas and being immediately loaned to the Edinburgh side for three seasons. He made his Hearts debut against Kilmarnock in the Scottish Cup, scoring the final goal in a 3-1 victory.[1] His second goal for Hearts also came in the Scottish Cup, but it did not prevent his team for losing against Celtic in the semi-final.[2]

In his second season at Hearts he helped the team to win the Scottish Cup by scoring the winning goal in a quarter-final 2-1 win against Partick Thistle. In the same match where Roman Bednar got sent off for diving in the second-half 15 minutes after coming on as a sub.[3]

Since November 2006 Česnauskis did not play for Hearts over a year due to injuries or simply not being picked, and only played two matches for the Lithuanian national team. He finally made his comeback for Hearts in January 2008 in an away match against Dundee United, and soon after was voted Man of the match in his return to Tynecastle in a 1-1 draw against Kilmarnock. He scored his fourth Hearts goal, and his fourth in the Scottish Cup, against Motherwell on 12 January 2008.[4] He scored his first league goal for Hearts in a 2-1 defeat to Falkirk on 5 May 2008.[5]

On 26 February 2009, Česnauskis said he will leave Hearts in the summer unless he is given first team football before the end of the season, having started just two matches.[6 ] On 27 April, it was confirmed with immediate effect that the midfielder had, along with his teammate for Hearts and the national team Saulius Mikoliunas, left Hearts.[7]

On June 09, 2009, Česnauskis signed a two-year contract to join Ergotelis F.C..
