Tynecastle: Hearts manager Gary Locke encouraged by Dunfermline deal

The BDO employee was praised on Wednesday after his efforts saved the East End Park outfit from going bust earlier this year.

The League One club faced closure over debts of around £10m but Jackson managed to negotiate a deal with former owner and main creditor Gavin Masterton which allowed fans' group Pars United to gain control.

Jackson and his colleagues Trevor Birch and James Stephen are now focusing all their efforts on rescuing the Jambos from their own administration crisis and Locke hopes the football finance experts can do the double by saving Hearts.

He said: "I know I am speaking on behalf of everyone at Hearts when I say we're delighted to see Dunfermline come out of administration.

"It's great that the fans have taken over and I'm delighted for the gaffer (former Hearts boss Jim Jefferies, now in charge at Dunfermline) too. Now they can move forward as a football club.

"Bryan has been looking after them as well as us and we are in good hands with both he and Trevor. Hopefully, with a bit of luck we can get the same result as Dunfermline before January."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
