Houston was pleased with his side's display but they fell behind to a first-half brace from Ryan Stevenson, one goal coming from the spot, and, although Keith Watson pulled one back after the break, Houston's men could not get a leveller.

"I thought the team that played the better football lost today," said Houston.

"We played quite well in the first half as well and again it comes down to an individual error. Brian (McLean, defender) should deal with the first goal, but we didn't deal with it properly and we found ourselves a goal down.

"I haven't seen the penalty again. I thought it was a bit soft, but other people have told me it was a penalty kick.

"We found ourselves chasing the game and second half I thought we absolutely pummelled them.

"We were the away team today but we pinned Hearts back and they were desperately hanging on.

"They cleared everything we threw into the box but I'm walking away from here with nothing and I feel a wee bit hard done by. The ball didn't break for us today."

Former Hearts man Rudi Skacel was given a good reception by the home supporters and Houston was happy with his display.

"I thought he worked really hard," said Houston. "He's been playing really well recently and that's why he played. It was his shot that we got the goal from. I thought he worked his socks off but nothing really broke for him today."

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

F365's Transfer Guide - Part One

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
