Hearts Have Already Held Talks with Jack Ross, Stuart McCall and Steve Cotterill

Hearts Have Already Held Talks with Jack Ross, Stuart McCall and Steve Cotterill

Hearts‘ search for a new manager appears to be ramping up today, with the revelation that the Edinburgh club have already held talks with three candidates.

The Jambos parted company with Craig Levein earlier this month after a disastrous start to the season saw Hearts languishing in 11th spot in the table – only ahead of St Mirren on goal difference.

Interim manager Austin MacPhee managed to secure a 5-2 win over the Saints on Saturday to steer Hearts away from the foot of the table, but it looks as though Ann Budge might be set to overlook MacPhee in favour of a completely fresh approach.

According to Barry Anderson of the Edinburgh News Sport, Budge has already met with three potential new managers, with Stuart McCall, Steve Cotterill and Jack Ross all holding talks with the Tynecastle hierarchy.

According to the report, McCall, Ross and Cotterill have all been interviewed this week, with the Daily Record reporting former Birmingham City boss Cotterill as being in pole position.

Cotterill left Birmingham in March 2018, whilst McCall has been out of work since leaving Scunthorpe United earlier this year, but the former Rangers midfielder did manage to guide Motherwell to successive second-place Premiership finishes in 2013 and 2014.

Ross, who has also been mentioned as a potential Hibs manager, left Sunderland last month after a difficult start to their campaign in England’s League One.

So, who do you think should be the next Hearts manager? Do any of these three managers fit the bill?
