Billy Brown: Offers his services free to Hearts

The 62-year-old, who has previously held coaching roles at Tynecastle, will work on a voluntary basis.

His most recent job was as manager at East Fife where he left four weeks ago.

Hearts will start next season on minus 15 points having gone into administration during June.

Locke, 38, said of Brown's unpaid appointment on the club's website: "It's an absolute no-brainer for me.

"It's not often you get the chance to get someone of Billy's experience and he's offered to come in and help me out during pre-season which is a magnificent gesture.

"I can't do it all on my own and it's obvious I'll need a help, so to have Billy in here is a great help.

"I can't afford to bring in an assistant and it's a measure of the man that Billy was only too willing to help out without getting paid.

"He's someone I obviously know very well and I'm delighted to have him here. We are all in this together."

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.
