Video: Ann Budge Admits Threat of Relegation and Coronavirus is ‘Very, Very Bad News’ for Hearts

Ann Budge has been detailing how the coronavirus pandemic, as well as the threat of relegation, has already hit Hearts hard in the pocket.

The Tynecastle club’s owner has been chatting to Sky Sports news and revealing just how bleak things could start to look if the footballing fixtures don’t soon return to normal.

What do you think of Budge’s comments, and do you think Hearts will eventually end up playing their football in the Championship from next season?
