Romanov Introduces New Sporting Director

The Lithuanian banker met with the Hearts squad and spoke with them at length, asking for reasons why results so far this season have not been on a par with the last campaign.

The identity of the new sporting director is not yet known.

It is the first time that Romanov has paid a visit to Gorgie since the end of the last campaign but it is not known if he will be at Parkhead tonight to watch the team in action in the quarter-finals of the Co-operative Insurance Cup against Celtic.
