Neil Lennon launches scathing attack on Hibs ahead of derby

Disgraceful, unprofessional, ordinary, insipid, complacent. Pick any insult you could hurl at a team of professional footballers, and Hibs boss Neil Lennon probably said it in a four-minute tirade against his players following this 1-1 draw at Raith Rovers.

Hibs’ Brian Graham has no room for sentiment

Brian Graham has been surprised to see his former club struggling to find a win. But while he has sympathy for them and admits he still has a soft spot for Raith Rovers, he does not want to see them get back on track against Hibs this afternoon.

Hearts 4-2 Raith Rovers: Cathro’s men through after extra time

Interview: Willie Gibson on tough relationship with Hearts fans

Idon’t know if you saw that documentary about The Scotsman this week but the stand-out moment for me was when the narrator, Hearts-supporting thespian Ken Stott, revealed how in 1840 the paper broke the story of the Ice Age. This was 2,600,000 years after the event but, come on, an exclusive’s an exclusive. And now, folks, I think I might have uncovered a deep-frozen scoop of my own.

Several Hearts players, including defender John Souttar, described Sunday’s draw with Raith Rovers as feeling like a defeat given the circumstances. It might therefore be worth the Tynecastle side treating tomorrow’s replay as a bonus match rather than an inconvenience.

Raith Rovers boss Gary Locke keen to break his Hearts

Gary Locke understands what it is like to be a young, untried manager tasked with protecting and delivering the hopes and dreams of half a city. So when the former Hearts boss lines up against Ian Cathro at Stark’s Park this afternoon, as his Raith Rovers side take on his boyhood heroes in the Scottish Cup fourth round, he will empathise with the man who stirred up such attention when he took on the Tynecastle role last month.
