Kevin Thomson: Hibs ‘should have done a Dundee’ with Butcher

As much as I admire Paul Hartley, who took me to Dens Park and installed me as skipper, I think it was the right decision by Dundee to make a change – though, like many, I am slightly surprised by my fellow Scotsman columnist Neil McCann’s appointment. But good luck to him.

Ironically, the departure of Paul Hartley is quite reminiscent to that of his former Dundee derby foe, Jackie McNamara. When news of each sacking was announced, many pundits remarked that “he dealt a bad hand” by the sale of star players. In McNamara’s case it was Stuart Armstrong, Gary Mackay-Steven and Nadir Ciftci. For Hartley it was Greg Stewart and Kane Hemmings.

Ian Cathro hails important hard fought victory over Dundee

With pressure increasing on Ian Cathro and Hearts with each passing fixture it was a case of “any win will do” prior to yesterday’s meeting with Dundee. Eventually holding on to Esmael Goncalves’ 13th-minute winner, the home side picked up a victory that was of immense importance to their rookie head coach, as an already dissatisfied support may just have turned mutinous had the result gone any other way.
