Romanov attacks 'media monkeys'
Thursday 04 August 2011
Hearts owner Vladimir Romanov called his critics "fools and idiots" yesterday in defending his decision to remove Jim Jefferies as manager after he rejected Romanov's offer to become director of football, and put in Paulo Sergio instead.
The Lithuanian said: "Judging by the pre-planned squeals the media monkeys are making, Hearts has hit the point with the move... with only one win in 15 games, only fools and idiots would not raise questions."
