TWO of the saviours of Hearts, Ann Budge and Ian Murray MP, hailed a momentous day for the club yesterday after a deal was struck to transfer a crucial 29% shareholding from Lithuania.
THE longest day in the 140-year history of Heart of Midlothian has just dawned, with the drama confined to meeting rooms at a variety of locations in Vilnius, rather than on any football field.
Twelve months from now, Hearts could be in a very optimistic place, potently rebuilding in the SPFL Championship, with a fine crop of young players.
Hearts assistant manager Billy Brown has called for the club's transfer embargo to be lifted to prevent Scottish football's credibility being damaged.
Good on you, Jim Duffy.
