In an statement on the official Hearts website today, it was announced the caretaker manager Stephen Frail has left the club mutual consent.

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”.
