The former East Fife boss, who has had two spells at Tynecastle previously during Jim Jefferies reign, has been working under Gary Locke on a short-term, voluntary basis.

The 62-year-old told the Hearts website: "I didn't enjoy being out of the game and came here with the intentions of helping Gary and the club as much as I could.

"I have a lot of enthusiasm for the club and the job and I'm very excited about what's happening here at the moment.

"We have the whole season to keep chipping away at the teams above us. The young players have done exceptionally well so far and they will only get better - but it is not going to be an easy task."

Locke said: "Billy knows everything there is to know about the Scottish game and to have someone of his enormous experience here is a boost."

Hearts, who began the season with a 15 point deduction having entered administration in June, have reduced the deficit to 11th-placed St Mirren to nine points after five games.

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.
