Stephen Robinson says speculation about a move to Hearts is "disrespectful" after reports surfaced linking the Motherwell boss with the Tynecastle club.
Hearts have refuted the reports - and owner Ann Budge has re-confirmed her support of Craig Levein - but Robinson admits he is focussed only on Motherwell, who could climb to second with a win over Ross County today.
According to the Daily Record, Robsinson said: "Speculation like that is disrespectful as there is a man already in the Hearts job.
"I don't read it. I don't pay any attention to it. I concentrate on what I'm doing here. I'm sure everybody else in their job is doing the same.
"I'm focused on trying to take Motherwell into second place as we have a massive game against a good Ross County side.
"That's a tough enough task without worrying about anything else."
