Football: KEITH JACKSON TAKES YOUR CALLS; Jeffgate's Put Hearts Fans into a Real Frenzy


THE Jeffgate scandal hit the Hotline yesterday as Hearts fans vented their fury over the loss of their manager.

Chris Robinson came in for particular attention but then he should be used to that by now.

Lorenzo Amoruso was also picked out by our callers but, unlike Robinson, the Italian found he does indeed still have some friends left as the Ibrox legions continued to dissect Rangers' Champions League failure.

Jim Duncan, Falkirk, seems happier with his life as a Bairns fan - for now.

He said: "Alex Totten would be off his head to go to Tynecastle. He must be the happiest manager in Scottish football and if he stays at Brockville then he'll pass Hearts on the way up."

Now to Ibrox, where Amoruso was getting some moral support. …
