A player registration embargo imposed by the Scottish Premier League over late payment of wages is due to be lifted on 23 December and Lithuania striker Arturas Rimkevicius is one new recruit in the pipeline.

Admitting several players could leave in January to be replaced by cheaper options, McGlynn said: "The football club will still need to satisfy the SPL for that transfer embargo to be lifted. We might have to lose some players and it may be we have to bring in players at a lower wage to compensate for that.

"If he (Rimkevicius) was going to be part of our plans, if he was training

with us, he would get his fitness up and be ready to go if everything was to work out. There's a wee bit of work to get done first of all with the transfer embargo."

Ryan Stevenson scored Hearts' opener from the penalty spot, before his replacement Callum Paterson netted the second for a welcome victory after a three-match winless run.

"I thought we merited a good 2-0 victory, a good response to last week's derby defeat," added McGlynn.

"We defended all the set-pieces very, very well, stayed solid. Barring the Celtic game when we lost four goals, our defensive record's fairly good and barring a wee bit of bad luck for us last week we would've had another clean-sheet."

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!

t's wrong to be making a joke out of Bender's name at the expense of gay people. It's the kind of childish, uncivilised thing that Football365 would deride and ridicule if it was another media outlet saying. Why is there a need for jokes like this? Does it make your writers feel like men? F365 might suggest that I 'lighten up', but it is genuinely traumatic for people who have been oppressed all their lives to be the butt of jokes, and to be told...
