Michael Stewart can expect to join Chris Sutton and Neil McCann on Mark Warburton’s naughty step.

Last night the former Hearts and Hibs midfielder took Warburton to task on the back of a 2-0 defeat at Tynecastle that sees the tribute act drop to fourth place in the table.

Sticking rigidly to his head-in-the-sand policy of Plan A Warbo’s side were easily picked apart by a Hearts side who knew that their own manager sees MK Dons as a better prospect that hanging around at Tynecastle.

It was another abject display by Warbo’s side with the former city trader taking comfort from the time taken for the match officials to disallow an effort from Joe Dodoo with Harry Forrester standing in front of the Hearts keeper in an offside position.

Sutton and McCann have been hounded this season for solid professional criticism of the Magic Hat with Stewart bound to get the same treatment as Warbo spins moonbeams ahead of Saturday’s match against Aberdeen.

Speaking on BT Sport Stewart said: “Mark Warburton is talking about they knew how Hearts were going to play so where was the game plan?

I find it also astonishing to come out and complain about the Harry Forrester/ Joe Dodoo ‘goal’. The time is immaterial, the decision is correct and he’s complaining as if that was the real issue there. They got the decision correct, it wasn’t a goal.”

Following criticism from Sutton Warbo was too busy to be interviewed by BT Sport after a win at Inverness, if he forgets another interview with the broadcaster it could prove costly.
