Ian Black (born 14 March 1985 in Bathgate) is a Scottish professional footballer who currently plays for Scottish Premier League side Hearts. Black was a trainee of Premier League club Blackburn Rovers, and joined Inverness Caledonian Thistle in 2004.[1]

It was reported in The Scotsman newspaper on 24 December 2008 that Black had agreed in principle to sign a pre-contract agreement to join boyhood heroes Heart of Midlothian in the summer of 2009.[1] Hearts confirmed that he had signed the agreement on 28 December and would join up with the club for the 2009–10 season.[2] On 2 July 2009, Black finally signed for Hearts after signing a pre-contract agreement in December 2008.[3]

Black represented Scotland B once in the 2005 Future Cup, in a 3–2 defeat by Turkey B.[4] After a four year absence he was included in the Scotland B squad for their game against Northern Ireland.[5]

He scored his first goal for his new club, Hearts F.C., against Falkirk in a 3-2 win at Tynecastle. It was a spectacular shot, on his weaker left foot, from 25 yards out into the top corner.[6]

Ian Black's father, also named Ian, was a professional footballer who also played for Hearts and city rivals Hibernian.[3]
