Hearts: Hope to have a preferred bidder status "within a couple of weeks&qu

Hearts joint-administrator Bryan Jackson believes his requirement for proof of funding could see at least one of the bidders for the club pull out.

The Foundation of Hearts fans' group is competing with two rival parties to buy the Scottish Premiership club - one involving former Livingston owner Angelo Massone and another a partnership between US investors and Scottish businessman Bob Jamieson.

The interested parties submitted bids earlier this month and were asked to provide evidence of their financial power by the end of this afternoon.

Jackson told STV: "I'd imagine that one or two could fall away - they produce some sort of proof of funding but we need to decide if that's strong enough for us.

"I can see us making a decision on one or two of the offers that come in after close of business today.

"We will need a couple of days to look at what we have but we may still have to go back to the interested parties to clarify one or two things.

"Hopefully we can move to preferred bidder status within a couple of weeks."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
