Hearts have appointed former Sporting Lisbon coach Paulo Sergio as their new manager after a chaotic 24 hours at the club.
Jim Jefferies was finally sacked after turning down a director of football role and former striker Sergio, 43, who managed Sporting for six months, was appointed yesterday. He coached Portuguese club Vitoria Guimaraes before joining Sporting last year but quit in February after a poor run of results.
