Locke criticism unfair, says former Hearts manager

PAULO SERGIO, who won the Scottish Cup as Hearts manager, insists that any criticism of the current incumbent Gary Locke is misplaced.

Despite working with a transfer embargo and a 15-point deduction for administration, Locke has still attracted flak from some elements of the support who question whether a different manager could have done better in the circumstances.

"It's very unfair to criticise," Sergio said. "Lockey is doing a fantastic job. These are not the best conditions to make a fantastic season and everybody should recognise that and the big effort and all the commitment Lockey has from this squad."
