Michael Stewart Believes Craig Levein Has ‘Safest Job in World Football’ at Hearts

Michael Stewart believes Craig Levein has the ‘safest job in world football’ at Hearts.

The BBC and BT Sport pundit appeared on the Ladbrokes Social Club yesterday and gave his opinion on Hearts’ start to the season.

He’s never shy in passing comment on what’s happening at his old club and has been unsurprisingly unimpressed with the Jambos as they struggled in the Betfred Cup and failed to win either of their first two Premiership games.

Their most recent result was a boring 0-0 draw with Ross County at Tynecastle on Saturday, with the Staggies unfortunate not to convert a second half penalty which could have earned them all three points.

According to Stewart, there’s no pressure on Levein as he continues to have the safest job in world football while Ann Budge remains in charge of Hearts.

Speaking on the Ladbrokes Social Club, which you can watch in full here, Stewart said:

Hearts actually haven’t won any of their last three games, going down to Aberdeen on the opening game of the season after drawing 1-1 with East Fife and losing on penalties in their final Betfred Cup game.

They face Motherwell next on Friday night at Fir Park and that is sure to be a tough test for Levein and his men.
