McCoist calls for Hearts leniency

Rangers manager Ally McCoist has called for a show of leniency towards Hearts as they prepare for another Scottish Premier League hearing into their financial struggles.

•  Hearts placed under transfer embargo

The Edinburgh club have already been "reprimanded and warned" by an SPL board sub-committee after manager John McGlynn and some players were paid late in September. They now face a fresh hearing following the same circumstances occurring again in October.

McCoist is a man well-versed in the dangers of financial mismanagement after struggling against the same issues last season, before administration and relegation to the Scottish Third Division, and he is not keen to see Hearts follow the same path as Rangers.

"I know John and I know a lot of his players and, as in any other walk of life, if you're doing a day's work you think you should get paid for it, preferably on time," McCoist said.

"I personally would not want to see any more punishment at all to the Hearts players and indeed their staff.

"I think that probably what happened with ourselves would indicate that something will probably have to be done in terms of everyone keeps talking about fair play. That said, I'm certainly not wanting Hearts to suffer just because we suffered - absolutely far from it. Quite the reverse, in fact."
