Pressley And Levein Head Betting To Take Over At Tynecastle

Following the departure of Ian Cathro from Hearts, William Hill have installed Hearts hero, Steven Pressley as their 4/1 favourite to take over at Tynecastle with the club’s current Director of Football, Craig Levein 5/1 and both Paul Hartley and Tommy Wright at 6/1.

“The Cathro experiment didn’t quite work out and it looks as though those who were calling for a ‘real football man’ to take the helm seven months ago will get their wish,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.

Next permanent Hearts manager: 4/1 Steven Pressley; 5/1 Craig Levein; 6/1 Paul Hartley; 6/1 Tommy Wright; 7/1 Austin MacPhee; 7/1 Gary Locke; 8/1 Paolo Sergio; 8/1 Peter Houston; 10/1 Jack Ross; 10/1 Jon Daly; 12/1 Jim McIntyre; 12/1 Rudi Skacel; 14/1 Andy Kirk; 14/1 Michael O’Neill; 16/1 Allan Johnston; 16/1 Gary Mackay; 16/1 Owen Coyle; 20/1 BAR
