A full round-up of the Hearts/Hibs news making the headlines this morning, as well as stories from the rest of Scotland and beyond.

Stanton’s the man

Lewis Stevenson has hailed the young talent emerging at Easter Road, after Sam Stanton helped end a miserable five-match winless streak.

The 19-year-old opened the scoring for Hibs, which prompted Stevenson to heap praise on the youngster. (Daily Express)

Focus on pitch

Danny Wilson says he is trying to block out the commotion in the backroom at Tynecastle and focus on Hearts’ place in the table.

It comes after the Jambos pulled off a series of heroics in Inverness to take a share of the points on Saturday. (Daily Record)

Griffiths brings out best in Stokes

Celtic boss Neil Lennon believes Leigh Griffiths’ arrival is bringing out the best in striker Anthony Stokes.

The Parkhead boss handed the former Hibs frontman his first start since securing a £1million switch from Wolves a fortnight ago in Sunday’s 3-0 win over St Johnstone.

In brief:

• Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger praised his clinical side after the Gunners warmed up for Wednesday’s clash with European champions Bayern Munich by avenging their Anfield annihilation to dump Liverpool out of the FA Cup.

• He also hit back at Jose Mourinho for the Portuguese’s “silly, disrespectful remark” as the war of words between the two managers escalated over the weekend.

• Everton manager Roberto Martinez accepts his side’s FA Cup sixth-round tie at Arsenal will provide a real test of whether they can win the competition.

• The future of Fulham’s backroom staff should become clearer on Monday as newly appointed first-team manager Felix Magath looks to build on a constructive first day at the office.
