Hearts: Could be set to come out of administration

Creditors can meet on November 22 to consider a £2.5million offer from the Foundation of Hearts.

The deal would see the two major shareholders, Ukio Bankas and UBIG, hand over their combined 80 per cent shareholding.

Thae bank, which is also in administration, holds security over Tynecastle Stadium and the deal proposes this is also handed to the Foundation of Hearts' fan group. UBIG is also insolvent and a court hearing to appoint an administrator has been postponed several times.

The Foundation would take on the club's football debts of more than £500,000 but none of the other minor creditors would receive a penny.

The Lithuanian institutions are owed about £25million combined with the club's total debts closer to £30million.

Foundation of Hearts chairman Ian Murray said: "We welcome the news that BDO is progressing the CVA for 22nd November and hope that there will be a positive outcome.

"There is much work to be done, and again I cannot stress enough the importance of supporters who have not yet signed up to FoH, and who are able to do so."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

Please Stop Telling Us What To Think


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.
