From our Twitter page

BBC SPORTSOUND | On last night's Sportsound broadcast, a claim was made relating to the decisions made regarding the suspension of training.
No complaint was made by ourselves or Greenock Morton to the SFA regarding the training arrangements of Heart of Midlothian FC.


Any idea anyone what this is all about?
The good old totally impartial BBC in yet another piece of flagrantly biased non news perhaps?
Total bunch of stirrers.

Craig Levein alleged that Raith Rovers and Morton tried to force the SFA?/SPFL to stop Hearts training in line with other Championship clubs.

He is spouting his views in the DR.

I'd assume that before going public on that line of attack he will have irrefutable evidence for such a claim?

Ah! I thought not.
I feel a solicitor's letter coming on.🤔

What a mess that man is becoming (if not already there) with his self delusional importance and very limited horizons still trying to curry favour around Tynecastle and its associated meltdown mob.😠

And, why does he get invited to the Rovers Hall of Fame?

The man is an embarrassment to football

I see from the BBC gossip page, a number of column inches reporting refutes from both Rovers and Morton...............but NOTHING from the SFA. Surly they should be making a statement on their own behalf. Without it, there will be the usual " no smoke etc......,.."

Is Levein still on the Gorgie payroll? If so in what capacity? I thought he had been binned. Sorry can't keep up Confused

I've always had a soft spot for CL, but he's continually made a massive t*t out of himself since he left Dundee Utd.

He'd be well advised to just STFU and retire/withdraw from at least the media if not public life altogether.

I have heard that there was an on air apology on Sportsound tonight, it's not available on the BBC website yet but I will post when it is.

The DR are carrying the story. Kenny McIntyre apologised on air saying they got it wrong. He also spoke with our chairman who reiterated that we made no complaint and that someone had made it up.

But in the meantime Hearts fans who heard the original will have passed that on to their mates and the vitriol will continue, SFA should throw the book at Levein for spouting something he'd been told about and broadcast it as fact !

Bill Clark handled that very well. Refrained from saying that Hearts overreacted.
Made the point that the postponement had cost The Rovers a minimum of 2500, being the cost of testing ( all who were tested,he was pleased to say, passed). Good use of the media, Bill Clark.

BBC Scotland circling the waggons.

'We got it wrong'

No, Craig Levein got it wrong.

The SFA can't throw the book at Levein as he's not currently employed by any club.
He's no more accountable to the SFA for things he says on radio at present than Chick Young or Tom English.
