CRAIG LEVEIN has backtracked on comments he made on Monday that he and Hearts would appeal any ban imposed on Steven Naismith for his cowardly Scott Brown stamp.

The Hearts boss was adamant after seeing the incident that he would be challenging any decision made to punish his striker.

However, today Hearts have accepted the two-match ban which was handed out by the SFA for Naismith’s thuggish behaviour.

In all honesty, it was a no brainer to accept the fine. Naismith is only on loan at Hearts and will only miss the final game of the season this weekend after scoring the winner in the Edinburgh derby on Wednesday.

He will only have to serve the second game of his suspension if he returns to Scottish football.



  1. The Bitterness is Oozing from his every pore.Another Lodgy halfwit,No Doubt.Naismith shouldnt be allowed to play,Period.One of our players is going to end up with a career ending injury through these Parasites.The officials dont even bat an eye lid,Utter utter Disgrace,Its been happening for Years.Somethings needing done.

  2. this was a guy who was our Scotland manager, he is a bloody disgrace. I say Scottish manager, but should have said CRAP Scottish manager
