Hearts analysis: Ian Cathro will get time – but he must use it wisely

Ian Cathro will be given time to address the multitude of issues raised by Hearts’ Scottish Cup defeat against Hibs. There is no question of the Tynecastle hierarchy applying undue pressure on their head coach following last night’s meagre 3-1 loss at Easter Road.

Hearts outclassed, outfought and out of the Cup
