Romanov rants at 'fools and idiots'

Hearts owner Vladimir Romanov has attacked his critics as ''fools and idiots'' after defending his decision to remove Jim Jefferies as manager.

• Paulo Sergio appointed
• Jefferies fired by Hearts

Jefferies left Hearts on Monday after rejecting Romanov's offer to become director of football, with Paulo Sergio appointed his successor as boss.

Hearts finished third in the Scottish Premier League last term, but the club are without a win in 11 games, a run which was unacceptable to Romanov.

The Lithuanian businessman told Hearts' website: ''Judging by the pre-planned squeals the media monkeys are making, Hearts has hit the point with the move.

''I believe that with only one competitive win in 15 games, only fools and idiots would not raise questions and suspicions.

''I now understand why Scotland is in 61st place in FIFA rankings behind such poor football countries like Lithuania, Albania and Gabon.''
