Meanwhile, the Record also report that Neil Warnock has been submitted as a possible candidate to replace Craig Levein as Hearts manager.

The 70-year-old left Cardiff City on Monday by mutual consent which led to speculation regarding the vacant positions at Hearts and Hibs.

Warnock, who has managed well over 1,400 matches for teams including Leeds United, Sheffield United and Crystal Palace, has preivously spoken of a desire to manage one of the Edinburgh clubs.

He told the Evening News in September: “I’ve always fancied one of them – Hibs and Hearts. It appeals to me up there with them being neighbours.

“No disrespect to the big two but I’ve always been an underdog and I’ve always thought: ‘I wish I could get a club up there and get a team to rival Celtic and Rangers.’"

It was revealed by the Evening News on Wednesday evening that the club are to hold talks with ex-Birmingham City boss Steve Cotterill, while Ian Holloway has spoken about the job.
