Hearts defender Andy Webster feels the fans and former manager John McGlynn will deserve huge credit if they win the Scottish Communities League Cup.

McGlynn lost his job late last month after four consecutive defeats, despite leading Hearts to the Hampden clash with St Mirren.

And the club might not be alive had supporters not raised more than £1million through a share purchase after Hearts were hit with a winding-up order over a tax debt in November.

First-team coach Gary Locke will lead the club at Hampden after guiding the team to four points from their last two Clydesdale Bank Premier League games, but Webster still refers to McGlynn as the manager ahead of a permanent appointment.

Webster said: "The fundamentals for the whole season have been laid by the manager. So from that point of view we have a responsibility there as players to make sure we are doing it for ourselves, we are doing it for the team, we are doing it for the club, the fans and obviously the manager.

"It will be a fitting tribute to the fans. They had a massive rally-round at the tail end of last year and hopefully on Sunday we can repay them by winning.

"It's a great occasion and a great place for the fans to come and be involved."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling


he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

Hodgson: Barkley was brilliant


o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
