Career[edit]

A left winger, Kšanavičius began his career with FBK Kaunas in 1994, making over 150 appearances before moving to Latvian champions Skonto Riga in 2001. After three seasons with Skonto he returned to FBK Kaunas. He spent the 2005 season on loan to Atlantas Klaipėda. He joined Scottish Premier League club Hearts on a six-month loan in July 2007 after featuring in the club's 3–1 friendly defeat by FC Barcelona.[1] He scored his first league goal for Hearts in a 4–2 win over Falkirk on 6 October.[2] On 11 March 2008, he signed a new contract that extended his loan at Hearts until June 2009,[3] before joining the club permanently in the summer.[4] On 3 August, Kšanavičius scored the only goal of a 1–0 pre-season friendly win for Hearts over Premier League new boys Hull, and then six days later he scored his second league goal for Hearts as they beat Motherwell 3–2.[5] On 8 January 2009, having found himself out of favour under Csaba László, Hearts announced that Kšanavičius had returned to FBK Kaunas after 18 months with the Tynecastle club.[6]
