Craig Levein has been sacked by Hearts, and will leave his post as Director of Football.

Hearts announced his departure as first-team boss within 24 hours of the club slumping to 11th place, following a 1-0 loss to St Johnstone.

The ex-Scotland gaffer has stepped down from the club’s board and will not return to his previous role as director of football.

The club statement reiterated that he won’t have a say or involvement in finding his successor.

The statement read:

“The board of directors of Heart of Midlothian Football Club has today taken the decision to relieve Craig Levein of his first-team managerial duties.

“Craig will not return to his previous director of football role and, that being so, will step down from the board.

“He will, however, see out his contract, which runs until the end of the season, working closely with the executive management team in continuing to develop and improve the structure of the backroom and youth operations within the development.

“We are confident that his knowledge and experience will contribute massively to ensuring that, come the end of the season, he will leave the football department in a healthy and thriving state.

“Effective immediately, Austin MacPhee will be in charge of first-team affairs, on an interim basis, while the board begins the process of recruiting a new manager. The new manager, and indeed the interim manager, will report directly to the chief executive.”
