Former Newcastle assistant Cathro, 31, took charge of the Jam Tarts back in December - his first position in the managerial arena - but after eight disappointing months, during which he won only eight of his 30 games, he's been sent packing by the club with immediate effect.

Hearts said they reluctantly made the decision, but believe it was the correct one, although the timing will no doubt be questioned with the club set to lock horns with Celtic on Saturday in their season SPL opener.

Hearts will make another statement on Wednesday regarding their future management plans, with the likes of Steven Pressley, Craig Levein and Gary Naysmith some of the early contenders in the betting.

Cathro has come under pressure last weekend after the Jambos were dumped out of the League Cup after finishing 3rd in Group B, and now less than eight months after his appointment he finds himself in the Job Centre.
