Paulo Sergio steered Hearts into the Europa League play-off with a comprehensive and stylish 4-0 defeat of Hungary's Paks at Tynecastle.

The new Hearts boss saw Ryan Stevenson score twice in 12 first-half minutes before Andrew Driver marked his return from injury with a third five minutes into the second half and Rudi Skacel celebrated his new contract with a fourth after 71 minutes.

Daniel Bode scored an 89th-minute consolation for Paks as Hearts secured a 5-2 aggregate success with a victory which ended an 11-match winless run and saw them progress through to Friday's 76-team play-off draw alongside Rangers and Celtic.
