Hearts owner Ann Budge has released a statement throwing her support behind Craig Levein and that’s great news for Motherwell.

In her statement, she clearly outlines that the Jambos have not been looking at potential managers to replace the Hearts boss.

Following Hearts’ defeat to Motherwell at Tynecastle, fans protested against their manager as their winless run from March continued.

Robinson would be a good fit for Hearts but would he want it

A report had linked Well boss Stephen Robinson to the Tynecastle hotseat had Levein left Gorgie (Scottish Sun). For the moment though, he is staying put.

He’s guided them to two cup finals and has brought in a host of exciting young talents from the youth academy, whilst also helping unearthing hidden gems like Cedric Kipre, Mark Gillespie and Charles Dunne.

Through the youth academy, youngsters like David Turnbull, Jake Hastie and James Scott have all made their first-team breakouts.

With the sheer volume of talent Hearts have at their disposal, especially in the youth ranks, Robinson would be a good fit. Working with a bigger budget as well would help him land the targets he is unable to at Fir Park.

Would he even want the Jambos job if he were offered it though? Whoever takes the job will be expected to deliver instantly, but as he’s shown with the Well, Robinson needs patience to build a decent squad.

The Northern Irishman also recently penned a new Well deal. It indicates that he is happy in Motherwell, plus the move to Hearts would only be a step up if he was a success.

Failure there could leave his managerial career in tatters. For the foreseeable future though, Robinson will be the Motherwell manager.
