Scottish Businesswoman Backs Bid To Turn Hearts Into Fan-Owned Club
Published November 16, 2012
FANS PLEA WITH ROMANOV: In Edinburgh, Barry Anderson reported Romanov was "urged to hand over control of Hearts to supporters" in an open letter from the Save Our Hearts fans’ group. They are asking the Russian businessman to "give his majority shareholding" to the Foundation of Hearts consortium. Save Our Hearts has "endorsed the plan" in its open letter to Romanov. The group was "heavily involved" in ousting former Hearts Chair Chris Robinson in '04 and now want his successor to choose a “dignified exit” and give the club to its supporters (SCOTSMAN, 11/15).
PLAYERS FUTURE IN DOUBT: The BBC reported Hearts Manager John McGlynn "would not be surprised" if the club parted with players in January. McGlynn: "The wage bill was halved in the summer, but it is still an issue and a problem. It may well be that players get interest and we get bids. It would be very good to keep every player until the end of the season, but the most important thing is that the club survives" (BBC, 11/15).
