Breaking his silence for the first time since his admission to hospital, Levein took to Twitter to send his first post in over two years, saying he hopes to be back for the Saturday 15 September trip to Fir Park.

He wrote: “Out of Twitter retirement for a short period. I’d like everyone to know that I’m feeling great and aiming to be back in the dugout for the Motherwell match, all being well.

“I’d like to thank the paramedics and all staff in the CCU at ERI for their care and professionalism.

He also added: “I’d also like to thank the professional footballing family for their amazing support, it’s been overwhelming. Huge respect and gratitude to the Hearts supporters and those of other clubs (including our friends across the city) who have taken time to wish me well.”
