Time at Club:
Hearts have sacked Ian Cathro after just 30 games in the dugout. More to follow.
Hearts are widely considered as the 'best of the rest' in the chasing pack behind Rangers and Celtic. They have won the Scottish Championship on four occasions but not since way back in 1960 although they managed to finish second behind Celtic in 2006, which was a huge achievement.
Hearts were able to break the Old Firms dominance in the League which should not be underestimated and not only that they managed to qualify for the Champions League for the first time. 2006 also saw Hearts win the Scottish Cup to cap a brilliant season and one that the fans will not forget in a hurry.
A single draw against Hibernian in an otherwise black and white set of results has seen Heart of Midlothian struggle for consistent results. Wins against Inverness CT & Aberdeen and defeats to Celtic, Aberdeen, Kilmarnock, Rangers, Hibernian, Rangers & Hamilton Academical demonstate slightly erratic form.
