Steve McClaren gets Hearts racing on Tynecastle

Mike Holden by Mike Holden / 08 August 2017, 11:03

After exhausting English football Steve McClaren could be on the verge of venturing North of the border to Scotland in pursuit of success after emerging as the new favourite for the Hearts job.

McClaren, who has managed the likes of England, Newcastle, Derby, Nottingham Forest and Middlesbrough - and let’s not forget spells in Holland and Germany - has been out of work since suffering the sack (again) at The Rams back in March.

Since then McClaren has been desperately plugging himself on Sky Sports News as he attempts to voyage back into the managerial arena. Up until now he’s been stuck in the Job Centre, but this could be about to change after bookmakers cut his odds to just 11/8 in the betting to replace his former Newcastle assistant Ian Cathro at Hearts.

Last week Cathro was sent packing just days before the dawn of the 2017/18 SPL season following a disappointing eight months at the helm. Under interim boss Jon Daly (25/1) the Jam Tarts lost 4-1 to defending champions Celtic, leaving the club rock-bottom after the opening round of fixtures.

Elsewhere, Dutch icon Edgar Davids, a former Barnet boss, has hurled his hat into the ring for the Tynecastle post. The former Ajax, Juventus and Tottenham star lasted just 15 months with the Bees, during which the club plummeted out of the Football League, however he’s now keen to bounce back, with his eye firmly on Hearts.

Hearts’ Director of Football Craig Levein remains in the frame at 5/1, while Dougie Freedman, Steven Pressley and billy Davies also still feature in the betting.
