Hearts’ miserable season continued this afternoon when Kilmarnock were able to plunder all three points from Tynecastle to give them their first SPL win since March.

Late goals from former Hearts defender Grant Murray and substitute Paul Di Giacomo
sealed the result for Kilmarnock, whose management team of Jim Jefferies and Billy Brown will return to Tynecastle tomorrow to take charge of the ‘Hearts select’ side at Robbie Neilson’s testimonial.

The smallest crowd for some years for a league game at Tynecastle (just over 10,000) bothered to turn up for this meaningless game, and no doubt even these hardy souls will have wished that they’d done something else instead now. I can imagine that pulling their toenails out with tweezers would have sounded appealing in comparison to watching Kestutis Ivaskevicius coming on as a second half substitute!

On the positive side though, at least our apathy means we don’t end up seething about refereeing decisions every Saturday night……

  • I’m shocked that our push for 7th place in the league has taken such a battering… I suppose the giants of Falkirk and Kilmarnock are always likely to cause us problems… And Doonhamers say ‘Killie cannae bongo’ I beg to differ.

  • No shame in losing to the cream of the crop as you say. A learning process for when we are up against sides that are more at our level….like Rangers!
