He left in 2004 and when Craig Levein offered him the job as coach of the Hearts under-19s side.
Frail went on to take over as joint first-team manager with Bulgarian Anatoly Korobochka, before taking sole charge at the beginning of this year.
The end of the statement again mentioned that a new manager shall be appointed “shortly”.
