Frail's future uncertain

Hearts Assistant Coach Stephen Frail could be set to sever ties with the club in the near future.

Frail could be on his way out at Tynecastle
Frail has cut an increasingly forlorn figure in the dugout in recent weeks, as the Jambos have slumped to 8th place in the SPL.

With the Jambos facing two tought away trips this week, first to Celtic Park in the CIS Cup, and then to Easter Road to take on Hibs, the pressure is mounting on Vladimir Romanov to take some form of action.

It is feared that two defeats could spell the end for Frail - one way or the other.

Frail is said to be becoming increasingly disillusioned with the situation at Tynecastle and fighting what is becoming a 'losing battle'.
