Former Premier League manager David Moyes has delivered a pretty clear message about whether he’d take either the Hearts or Hibs jobs.

The Scotsman is currently out of work after a spell at West Ham. He has also spent a lengthy period at Everton alongside stints managing Preston, Manchester United, Real Sociedad and Sunderland.

Hearts and Hibs are both looking for a new manager though after Craig Levein and Paul Heckingbottom were both dismissed within five days of each other.

Speaking to the BBC, it’s quite clear that Moyes won’t be an Edinburgh boss anytime soon: “Neither job would be of any interest to me.

“I wouldn’t say I wouldn’t move back to Scotland. Scotland is my love and Glasgow is where I’m from. Hopefully someday I may well come back but at the moment it’s not just now.”

Moyes would have been a big name at Hearts or Hibs

Whilst his last few managerial spells haven’t exactly been great to Moyes, his appointment as Hearts or Hibs boss would have been a fabled ‘statement of intent’ from either club.

You could make the argument that if Moyes were to join the SPFL, he would become the most experienced manager at a high level, with 688 games of experience down south.

Alas, the man himself has shut this down for now. A  move back to Scotland isn’t out of the equation forever, but Moyes doesn’t have any Edinburgh intent.

Hearts and Hibs will continue to search for new bosses to revive their faltering campaigns that leave them both stranded in the bottom six.
