Craig Levein lost his sense of humour last night after watching Hearts get hammered 5-0 at Livingston.

The former Scotland boss has tried to create a personality in recent times with a flow of gags usually aimed at Celtic with Scott Brown a favourite target.

Last week the Hearts manager suggested that some of the money that the O** F*** receive from UEFA could be used to install VAR to the Scottish game.

Levein has never discussed using some of the money Hearts have received from Celtic reaching the Champions League in 2016 and 2017 to make a goodwill gesture to some of the creditors who lost out when the Edinburgh club went into administration in 2013.

In midweek jokes about Theresa May and Brexit were part of Levein’s routine but as Livi ran riot last night the British Prime Minister looked like she had more control over her party than the Hearts boss did with his team.

The one thing I pride myself with my teams is that the players never give up,” the Hearts boss told BT Sport after the match.

“But I felt we chucked it tonight. And I can assure the Hearts supporters that level of performance will never happen again – not under my watch.

A win would have put Hearts level on points with Celtic at the top of the table now they are just two points ahead of Livi in fourth spot.
